My Students

Hard work runs through my students veins, and they are ready to prove it! As a teacher in a low income/ high poverty area, we face many challenges in and outside of our school! In my classroom, we are a family, and my kiddos know that they "live" in a safe space when they come into the building. I know that my kids deserve the world, but unfortunately we have limited funding in the public school world!

My 5th graders are at the best time of their adolescence.

They are not yet scary middle-schoolers, yet they have left the neediness of elementary aged students behind! We make sure to work together in my class. These incredible scholars are typically under served in the community, and I am on a quest to give them the best possible public education. They appreciate the support, although I don't know any ten year old that always shows it!

Bottom line, my kids are incredibly amazing and smart kiddos that love a good challenge and a supportive environment. These scholars will change the world!

My Project

Having access to relevant materials is NECESSARY to instill a life -long love for reading! Before sending these kiddos to middle school, I am determined to have them leave my classroom with the skills necessary to be successful readers. The books I am requesting from this project have proven to be some of the fan favorites for kiddos in this age band! Whether it is the Lunch Lady graphic novels, or the entire Smithsonian non-fiction collection, these books have awards and have shown kiddos love for many years! I enlisted a few of my scholars to help me create a well thought out book list for our classroom needs, and this was it! Please help my scholars find a true love for literature!
