My Students

Each year, students show up to in classrooms lacking far more than school supplies. These students are generally teachable and have great potential for learning, but the availability and quality of materials can be barriers to a quality education. Reading is the cornerstone to learning.

Most of my students need specialized instruction in core subject areas.

Through proper guidance, resources and encouragement, my students try harder and have achieved unexpectedly good results.

Their individual success motivates me to continually experiment with different teaching approaches and instructional resources in my classroom activities to promote students’ higher-order thinking skills and cognition.

My Project

The books that I am requesting will help build our classroom library, which will expose my students to various genres of literary and information texts. I want to continue promoting better reading performance by reading to them daily and having them interact with books through the extensive use of our classroom library. Reading is imperative for my student’s success. The reading difficulties they face often outweigh their desire to read and, without proper guidance, they may never overcome them. Learning to read is a sequential process; each new skill builds on the mastery of previously learned skills. They begin this process by learning to break down words into their most basic sounds. Later, they begin to comprehend the meaning of words, sentences and, ultimately, entire passages of text. I am noticing that the more contact my students have with books, the better readers they are becoming.
