My Students

"I always love to learn although I do not always love being taught." - Winston Churchill I am in a classroom of eager, excited, ready to learn children. Our challenge is writing. Most of my students have only been exposed to fiction and non-fiction.

I have a classroom of 19 bright third graders.

They are extremely proud and happy children despite their environment. We are a Title 1 school receiving 100% free breakfast and lunch. Despite the poverty level of my students, they come to class prepared, with open minds and hearts, ready to learn! They are eager to achieve the highest heights and they put forth the effort and time. They look forward to success and are working hard to achieve the best.

My Project

It is difficult for them to express themselves through writing because they do not read for pleasure. My students have only been exposed to fiction and non-fiction literature through school based text. I want to offer them the opportunity to learn new genres of books including mysteries, poetry, and fantasy. I want them to experience these types of pieces in order to become creative writers. I want to open their minds and show them how reading for pleasure makes them better writers.

Funding this project will give these students the opportunity to fall in love with reading.

Learning to love reading can be a great escape for many of these students. Your donations will provide students with the ability to see and study many genres of writing.
