My Students

Our students are awesome! Our students are hard workers who have ambition and dreams of success for their future. Most of our students' primary language is not English and about ninety-nine percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch. We work hard to create a welcoming, creative and loving environment for our students. Literacy is at the heart of our operation and there is nothing more exciting then when students receive new books and supplies! Thank you for your help and contributions!

My Project

My students have incredible curiosity! I want to foster that growth by introducing series and more challenging books. I know they can do it and many have already requested more series! My students are switching from learning to read to reading to learn. I want to surround them with incredible authors and worlds created in the pages of their soon to be favorite books. I want my students to grow independently by giving them greater choices in reading material.

They also need a place to call their reading "home".

Creating a welcoming and comfortable space with carpets and comfy seating lets my students get down to business and read some incredible books!
