My Students

The challenges my students face are enormous, and they deserve all the help we can give them!

My students come from a very low SES neighborhood, and many either receive special education services or are English Language Learners.

They are struggling to reach grade level in reading and need great, engaging books to inspire them to continue to work hard and achieve their goals.

My Project

My students need fun, easy chapter books from the Magic School Bus and Young Cam Jansen series. These two great series will inspire my students to love reading! The more they read, the better they will get, as they improve their skills through practice and repetition. My students will love these series, with their exciting characters and adventures!

Help me inspire my students to love reading!

The more they love it, the better they will get, which helps them immeasurably in achieving all their goals in life. They need all the support we can give them!
