My Students

Students thrive when they feel welcome and heard. In my classroom, we focus on including all students and creating a positive environment for everyone. The students in my classroom are a diverse group of learners. Each student's needs are different from one to the next.

My students focus on working together as a team.

Their efforts together help build a sense of strength and teamwork. The resources you are helping them get will only create a stronger bond and allow students to work towards their greatest potential.

My Project

My students know I love to read; however, they need the chance to discover new series and characters that THEY love.

We all fell in love with a series of books when we were younger; this project will give students the opportunity to read the books they will remember forever.

By acquiring these books for our class library, students will have more choices of books to pick from which will increase their engagement during reading.

Students do not always have access to the resources they need at home. By helping make our classroom library more diverse with lots of different series, students will be excited to pick books and read, read, read!
