My Students

Our students are part of two 4th grade classrooms that consist of 44 hard workers who love hands-on learning! We spend our day meeting the rigor of Common Core Curriculum with fun, exciting and engaging lessons that are full of interactive learning. Our school is part of an extremely impoverished district, and as teachers, we are doing everything we can to help bring new materials and experiences to our students that will forever change their educational experience.

It is common to walk into our classroom and see students being self-directed learners who collaborate with one another and preserve through difficult work.

They strive to do their best and even when faced with such adversity show up each and every day ready to give their best effort. They couldn't make us more proud!

The students work hard and are dealing with some challenging situations outside of school. Let's work hard to give them the best education and opportunities at school that we can!

My Project

Having new books will make a significant difference in our classroom. Our 4th grade classroom is severely lacking good books that students can use to learn how to read. My students are eager to become amazing readers and unfortunately our classroom lacks the resources to make books available to the students appropriate for their reading levels. Having more texts will allow students to expand their reading and comprehension as well as develop a love for reading. At such a young age it will make all the difference in the world for these kids to be exposed to quality literature and have the books they need to become successful readers. Thank you so much for considering donating to our project!
