Mrs. Mora from Chaparral NM is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I work in a small community in New Mexico. I teach the bilingual component and my students have limited English proficiency. There are many challenges my students face such as acquiring a new language, poverty, and lack of motivation amongst other things.

Parents struggle to make ends meet and sometimes can't provide basic school supplies nonetheless anything else.

For this reason, my students are very appreciative of the materials we receive through this organization. Such tools allow me to make the education environment better.

My Project

Reading is a very important skill. Unfortunately, many students have not discovered all the wonders of reading. I want to motivate my students to read for pleasure and not just because they have to.

By providing an unique and comfortable area for my students to read, I will be motivating students to read more.

The special sofa will be used as an incentive to motivate students to read for longer periods. The sofa will be part of a unique space in which students will be allowed to read at different times. It will be a privileged zone for readers. Hopefully having a comfortable space to read will allow my students to discover the wonders of reading!
