My Students

This year I have a class that ranges from gifted learners to ELL students. I work with 4th grade students in a Title I school. The majority of my students qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunch. It is a small school with about 550 students. We work on many hands on projects in all academic areas.

I love working with my students and I hope to continue sparking their interests so they can be creative and innovative in everything they set their minds to do.

With budgets being cut every year, I need to look elsewhere to get the resources my students need. Most of the time I am the person who buys materials that we need for a lesson.

My Project

Throughout this year my students have been figuring out what types of book they like to read. Reading is their favorite subject. So, when I told my class how the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was the first novel I enjoyed reading when I was their age, they were inspired! Harry Potter transformed me from a non-reader into an avid reader!

My students want to read the first Harry Potter book more than anything in the world.

When I say that, I mean they would be willing to raise money, on their own, just to read that book. My ultimate goal is to have one book per student so we can read this novel with the entire class. That way we feel connected and they can experience the magic and excitement together.

My classroom library budget has been depleted but I don't want that to discourage my students. Please help me give my students the gift of reading. Coming from low-income homes, not all of my students have books in their homes. With your help, I can put the book of their dreams into the hands of my students.
