Ms. Vining from Mc Calla AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading is Fun

My students need books! Reading is fun and for everyone!

My Students

I teach the coolest middle schoolers around. My students may have some form of disability but that does not define them. They are full of talents and abilities that the world deserves to see!

It’s time to see ABILITIES!

It starts with a book and becomes so much more.

I had a student tell me “today people made fun of me because I can’t read”.


This is not acceptable! We can read! And we will read. And we will see how amazing we are at reading!

My Project

My self contained class is working on reading books. Chapter books! They are some smart cookies but need some books to hold in their hands! Help us out and make this year great!

We love learning and growing.

Often times our students are told they can’t do something or they aren’t able to do things but this is simply not true!

They are bright students with a great future ahead! It’s time for them to realize they can chase any dream they desire. When we start learning to ready we become ready for something powerful in the future. Please consider reaching out and supporting our class!
