My Students

My third graders live in a low-income/high poverty school district. I teach children everyday that have gone through many obstacles in and out of the classroom. Recently, we encountered our second hurricane within two years. Most of my student's families live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford to buy the extras that are needed to help benefit their education. We feel it is our job to give them every opportunity that is afforded to them to enable them to reach their educational goals.

Our students inspire us everyday!

No matter what life has thrown at them, they still manage to wake themselves up in the morning and come to school ready to learn.

My Project

I have for a long time tried to supply my students with a wide variety of books to read. Now, I want to give them options for reading those books. Not a lot of people enjoy reading a book while sitting ar a desk, so I want to give them some different options of seating in my class. I think they would really enjoy a nice comfortable couch and a good book during their free time. I feel that the more they read not only the better they will become at reading, but my pray is that they develop a love of reading.
