Mrs. Figueroa from Dade City FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Gives You the Freedom to Dream

My students need Spanish language books of different levels of interest that keep them excited and entertained in class.

My Students

I teach approximately 150 students. They come from different backgrounds and have different interests, especially in the Spanish class, which makes them a very diverse and challenging group with which to work.

Most of my students have some knowledge of the Spanish language but unfortunately the school does not have the resources to engage them.

Students who have some knowledge in the Spanish language have different needs and interests and I as a teacher want to give them all the necessary tools to achieve success.

My Project

The books that I am requesting will be a great resource for my students since through them, they will be able to discover new interests that will help them in their personal and educational growth.

Students will have the opportunity to improve their reading comprehension through interesting and fun books pertinent to their age and mastery.

Giving students the opportunity to read books they can easily understand will motivate them to continue reading. Which in these days is very difficult to achieve in high school students who are not used to reading.I hope encourage life long interest in reading for my students.
