Professional development

Take a Look, Donate a Book

My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience.

My students deserve the best opportunities to learn.

They just need materials that suit their variety of learning differences. We all learn differently and need a variety of materials to do so. We will truly appreciate any help that is provided with funding this project!

My Project

It is important to be the best teacher that I can be! These books will help me in the process of learning more for my students!

Learning can be hard, but we can make it easier!

Our students struggle, but there are ways for us to make it easier for them and important for us to do so! Knowing how to help my struggling readers will make them enjoy reading and build their self-confidence. Writing is another area of weakness for my students, and they need all the help they can get.

Thank you for looking at my project and taking the time to donate!
