My Students

My students hail from diverse backgrounds, but many share a common thread - they live below the poverty level. By the time the morning bell rings, they've already faced obstacles. Some are homeless and hungry, others neglected. Most receive free breakfast and lunch. School is their haven, a safe environment. It's the place they are excited to spend their days and embrace new experiences. These children are just beginning a journey as lifelong learners. With the right resources and support, all are capable of achieving success.

My Project

Children learn to read in 1st grade. The skills they cultivate now will carry throughout their lifetime.

That's why it's critical that they LOVE to read!

Having a comfortable place to curl up with a good book heightens the experience and creates positive associations with literature. It would be wonderful for them to have a cozy nook with comfy floor seats, an option besides the hardback desk chairs, where they could read independently or with a buddy - elbow to elbow, knee to knee, the book in the middle where both can see ...

I would like my students to look back on 1st grade someday and remember how fun it was!
