My Students

Our students are excited, brilliant readers. They are diverse in ethnicity and reading abilities, yet they are one. These students are focused on a skill that they can use to elevate their intelligence and confidence both as a group and individually.

In addition, our students are centered and accepting of the challenges they face, however, they like to be prepared for new challenges and having resources that contribute to the will and intellect of these students is honest, sincere and very invigorating our students are winners with a purpose.

My Project

Our students will have books in their hand that they can read and comprehend. We will compete in the Battle of the Books for our school district. When students have the resources needed they are adequately able to enter the race with confidence that they have the tools to be successful.

The students and their peers will take ownership of challenging themselves to read each book, while the teachers will help facilitate the students reading and answer questions.

Each student will set a goal and take a comprehensive quiz over each book as part of their preparation. The end result is for the students to compete and have fun.
