My Students

My students are excited to come to school each day and are eager to learn.

"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader." — Margaret Fuller.

These students truly are tomorrow's leaders. My students' love for learning is so evident when you walk in our classroom. They are engaged in their learning and love working collaboratively.

Our classroom library is an important part of our classroom. Students are excited to visit the library and love to find new books. They enjoy sharing their book choices with classmates.

My Project

I want to provide my students with books that will create a love of reading for the rest of their lives! I have chosen books that my students are excited about, like "Clementine" and "Galactic Hot Dogs". With these new books, my students will have a greater variety to choose from in our classroom library.

My students show so much interest in reading already, I want to do everything I can to help grow their love of reading even more.

I am excited to see the look on their faces when they see all of these new books for our classroom. I hope you will consider helping to develop a love for reading in the next generation!
