My Students

I have been a teacher for five years. Over the last five years, I have taught primarily second grade. This year I was told that I am moving up to third grade and teaching the gifted class as well. Most of my classroom literature is lower to upper second-grade books. I decided to submit this project over the summer in hopes of it being funded prior to the start of the school year!

My classroom is built on kindness, trust, and hard work.

I truly believe that every child can be successful in school. My goal is to give my students the tools they need to succeed and to give them the confidence they need to tackle all their problems! With your help, we can make this a reality!

My Project

These books will help create a rigorous and enjoyable classroom library for my students. My classroom library is my favorite part of my classroom. My students curl up on pillows and the classroom couch while they are reading. Every book I selected was chosen carefully. My book list is designed to help hesitant readers find books that they can fall in love with! My library is organized by genre, so students will be able to independently select books based on their interests. With these new books, my students will find titles that they enjoy and want to read! These books will help my students become stronger and more independent readers.
