My Students

I am a teacher in a high poverty school where my students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the obstacles they face, my students enjoy school. School is their safe haven... it's the constant in their life.

All students deserve the same opportunities to become successful, competent readers!

Some of the students in my classroom come from homes where learning to read is not a top priority- meeting the child's basic needs of food and shelter takes precedence. Many of the families I service do not speak English as their first language. My students typically do not live in homes filled with books. All students deserve the opportunity to be immersed in a learning environment where reading is valued and enjoyed.

My Project

My students need materials to keep them engaged during reading workshop. I love being able to introduce new books to my students and make them available in our classroom library! I can't wait to use the easels to pique students' interest in new books!

Many of my students love reading poetry and graphic novels.

The Babysitter's Club series, Hannah and Sugar, Roller Girl and more will be of high interest to many of the girls in my class! We have lots of graphic novels for the boys to read, but I don't have many for the girls!

Having a library full of new titles keeps students wanting to spend lots of time reading!
