My Students

Hello all! I am a first year teacher and am very eager to have my students love reading. I work in a Title I school, so many of the students come from homes where little to no reading is done. I am hoping that in my first year of teaching I can inspire these little humans to read as much as they can, but also love to read like I did when I was younger. My students are bilingual and sometimes they do not like coming to reading class because reading is not enjoyable due to the language barrier. I am hoping to help my students overcome this and learn to love to read.

My Project

Whether students believe it or not reading is a huge component of life they need to master. My students have not been exposed to reading in a positive manner.

These books will allow my students to view reading as something positive and not negative due to lack of exposure.

I chose books based off their interest, reading levels, and books they would have never thought of picking up. By doing this I am hoping to ignite a fire in the wanting to read. It's not only just having a classroom library- it's having a library the students want to go to and choose books they WANT to read. By donating to my project you will be part of helping ignite a fire in my students reading.

Our classroom was affected by Hurricane Harvey.
