My Students

My students have a love of learning! They come in each day eager to learn and thrive. Our great school is in a small, rural community where staff and community members work together to give each child the best learning experience possible. My students feel successful every day!

My students' enthusiasm and love for learning amazes me everyday.

One way we spend our days is investigating the world around us through literature! My students are excited each day to come to school and learn about something new.

The staff is dedicated to not only providing the best education possible to children, but to have a wonderful environment where students can have fun and feel safe. Being a part of this staff and community gives me great pride!

My Project

The reading nook promotes a welcoming environment for our students to gain an interest in reading, develop their language skills and practice their social skills with their peers. The reading nook can provide an organized space where a variety of books are located for our students to access at any point during their day at school. Students could have the space to have a relaxing spot to flip through books with their friends. It can also serve as a calming space whenever a student needs a break. Our students can also develop their language skills by reading familiar and fun books. The reading nook can also be a space for students to share their favorite books with each other and encourage the value in books and reading.

Your donation will help our students have a calm space for reading, developing language and building relationships with each other!

The reading nook will help our students meet their language and social needs, as well as have a fun space to read books!
