My Students

My students are a fun group of creative and active 5th graders. We live in an rural, isolated village in northwest Alaska, where many students practice subsistence hunting and fishing to support their families. Most of my students are Native Alaskan and are taught traditional native values. My students love playing sports, hunting carribou, riding snow machines and four wheelers, going ice fishing and sledding.

My students are a diverse group, with strong ties to their families, their culture and the land.

In the classroom, they are an energetic group that enjoys working in groups, doing hands-on activities, and playing goofy games.

My Project

My classroom is blessed with a lot of books, but right now many of them are tucked away in cabinets where students can't access them. This bookshelf will put all of our books out on display, where students can see them. With more access to our books, my students will spend more time reading in school and at home.

Help me inspire my students to read, read, read!

With this bookshelf, I will have the space to organize my books into interest groups. That way my students can quickly and easily find books that they will love.
