Ms. Gregory from Saint Louis MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Shelves of Possibilities!!

My students need these bookshelves so that I can put out the books that I have so they have more to choose from.

My Students

My students learn best with hands on projects! They are great kids who sometimes feel like they don't have any chances in this world. They sometimes wonder, "Why do my best?"

They could do so much more if we had the resources and the opportunities for them to really see what they are able to do if they put their minds to work for them.

I believe in them as do all the teachers in our school, but many of them have little or no academic support at home to help them dream big and believe that they can reach their dreams with a little hard work and effort.

My Project

I teach Reading to sixth-grade middle school kids who would rather play video games than read. But IF they find the right book at the right time and make a connection to the book then that love of reading will be sparked, and a reader will be born. I cannot help to ignite that spark if I do not have the space to put out a variety of books for my students to choose from. My students need these bookshelves so that I can put out the books that I have so they have more to choose from. I have hundreds of titles in multiple genre's for students to borrow anytime they want and they can explore the written universe and hopefully find something that will help them find that passion for reading that is within them. And, the more they read the more they will know, the more they know, the more places they will be able to go. At least that is what Dr. Seuss always said. Help my kids become readers!
