My Students

My school is a Title I school that serves a low socioeconomic community, with over 90% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches. My students love to learn, and it makes me want to be a better teacher for them daily.

My students come to school not only to learn academics but to learn to be a part of a community.

My students love to come to school to learn new things, as well as how to be friends and helpers in their community.

My students make my job so fulfilling and I love to give back to them whenever I can.

My Project

These books will help my students by connecting them to STEM principles. The books that I need are specific to STEM projects that will be introduced throughout the school year. My students love to read and listen to read alouds throughout the day, and this is one great way to make that happen.

Any time that I can connect literacy to any subject is a success, and helps engage students.

This project is no exception to that! My students will not only learn STEM principles, but they will have great literature to go with them! I am asking for these titles so that I can give my students awesome read alouds that can be used to stimulate their minds and help them with science, engineering, technology, and mathematics.
