Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My students are amazing! I have 15 students in 7th grade and 13 in 8th grade. They are all in a special education class for study skills and they all mainstream to general education classes too. My students are amazing because they are all progressing in school. They have learning disabilities and although they may be behind in their grade level, each and every one of my students are motivated to improve themselves, both personally and academically. I have some students that have gone from a first grade reading level to a fifth grade reading level in two years because they read non-stop. But they want more books!

This year we have added math and language arts to their special education program which is a fantastic opportunity for them to get more support before entering high school.

My amazing students would greatly benefit from more books in our classroom, which normally would take years to purchase with limited funding.

My Project

All my middle school, low socio-economic, special education students love to read but we have a small school library and they have read most of the books already! We read one hour a day in class either a read aloud, small groups or independent reading. Students are taught story structure, literary elements and then they mind map all their readings to be displayed on our walls.

They are starving for more classroom books to enrich their learning and broaden their horizons.

Your donation will give them this opportunity and in turn our society will benefit from kind, well read and grateful young community members.
