My Students

My students attend a rural school 30 miles outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Because our school enrollment is under 200, teachers get to know students very well. Students receive instruction in small groups or one-on-one when needed. Our students are eager to learn, and are very involved in many extracurricular activities.

It has long been my goal to make each of my students life-long avid readers.

That is why it is my passion to provide them as many books to choose from as possible.

My Project

I will use your generous gift to provide excellent books for my students to read. Students must have a selection of wonderful novels from which to choose.

These books will help to make my students lifelong readers.

My students will have access to excellent books in my classroom to read. These books will help them find worlds outside of their own in which to explore.

Nothing is so precious as the gift of reading. My students will be so grateful for your gift. It will serve them for the rest of their lives. A love of reading is something that will always be beneficial.
