My Students

My students are energetic, engaged and vibrant eight and nine year olds. They love sharing ideas, collaborating on projects and motivating one another to be their best self.

We come from a variety of family and social backgrounds with a variety of natural talents.

My students love to read and write and share their ideas. We are curious, we question and we are developing our social skills through the process of collaboration. The students of EGS are generous in sharing their ideas about how they see the world and how they solve problems.

My Project

My students are in need of quality titles with catchy, and entertaining stories. My students love to read the Wayside School series, mysteries, and anything sports related is sure to be a hit.

These titles are sure to pique my students' interest and help them to develop that love of reading!

We could also really benefit from an oscillating fan to help circulate the air in our classroom. Though we live in New England, the late summer hazy, hot and humid days can be uncomfortable in our classroom. Having proper air flow will make those days more bearable.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement!
