My Students

My students are such an inspiration. This year my class is made up of students that come from a variety of different backgrounds. They love to learn and create things at school. Some of my students come from rough homes that are not able to provide them with books and educational support. Even with this obstacle, my students push through and strive for greatness.

The students in my class are unstoppable, they see a problem and work their hardest to overcome it.

I truly believe they deserve the best and need your help in order to get the materials they need.

My Project

This year I am going to bring the joy of reading to my students. My goal is to find titles that will reach all of the children. I want books that will grab my students attention and also teach them lifelong lessons along the way.

This project will help my students become inspired readers.

I want the students reading books, talking about books, even dreaming about books. I want them to love reading. These books are going to be used during center time in my classroom. The students will be able to choose their own books to fall in love with. They will have all the different topics right at their fingertips to explore and fall in love with. So much of the school day is filled with papers and a computer, my goal is to bring back the books. With your help, my students can once again find the joy and love in reading.
