My Students

My classroom is made up of very bright young people who have grand goals for their futures. These students anticipate wither going to college or going in to the military. They are smart, curious, and hard working. Most of my students are reading on grade level or higher and have the desire to be challenged daily.

I am hoping to gather materials that will stimulate my students in new and creative ways in order to strengthen their abilities.

Even though my students are reading on grade level, many of them do not appreciate reading yet. I am excited to share new and fabulous authors and books with them that will not only help them to learn to love reading but will also help them to grow in their global education by reading books from a variety of genres and authors.

My Project

Help us make our classroom even better! My students love reading time even though they are in high school. They enjoy the moments in class when I can read aloud to them. The rug and bean bag chairs will allow my students to sit comfortably while we have reading time, whether it be during silent reading or read aloud time.

The books that I am requesting will enable my ninth grade students to envision the Holocaust as it really was.

Many of them are taking World History and this book, Night, goes hand in hand with their studies. Reading this book would help them get a more personal vision of what was really happening to the Jews i World War II. Being able to read books from around the world helps students to become global learners that are more prepared for college and the work force.
