My Students

I am working as a Kindergarten teacher at a title one school in Richmond City.

There are predominantly low-income households that are struggling to survive and the other are affluent households.

What makes our students so special, is their yearning to succeed, educationally.

It is important that students are experiencing the best type of care and education while at school so that they can be motivated and influenced to better themselves for the future.

I like to teach through hands-on activities that allow interaction throughout the classroom.

My Project

As a first year teacher, my library is filled with unwanted books of all skill levels. I didn’t realize it at the time, but these books are not helping students engage in independent reading.

My hope is by filling a library with leveled books, my students will be able to better engage with the literacy and even read them.

It’s so important to have students engage with literacy and because my students are in the library so frequently I would like to make it a goal to improve the environment where they could learn the most. Please help me improve my library.
