My Students

My students are participating in a special program within our school. Our Title I school serves about nine hundred diverse students. We also house many special programs. One of the special programs we offer is for gifted learners. This program has around three hundred students in grades six through eight, and I teach about one hundred and fifty-five of them. I have the unique opportunity to teach advanced math to sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students. I strongly believe good math skills will open up doors for my students to do anything they want in the future.

My students enjoy learning and look forward to being exposed to new material.

They are inquisitive, hardworking, and are always looking for new challenges. My students also love to play fun and interesting games in their free time and like to give back to the community. All of my kids have enjoyed the extras I can give them because of donors like you. They are always amazed at how lucky they are to have such wonderful items that enhance their learning. They have been excited about all of the community service projects and kindness acts we have done throughout the school.

My Project

I am collecting a diverse set of books so our kids can have choices once we are back in school and have our vending machine available. These 40 books will become a collection of books that kids can take with them to keep at home. Yes we have diverse books they can borrow in our classroom, but just not during COVID. These books will be available to purchase with a clink of a coin (tokens they earn). We want to spark the interest of our middle schoolers that may be reluctant to read.

We want them to feel comfortable picking books that help them advocate for themselves.

Seeing themselves as characters and being able to relate to characters socially is very important in middle school. Social Justice and wanting to take a stand for what is right is also something we want our middle schoolers to start doing and thinking about.

They can read it on their own and cherish the stories in a quiet way. I know my personal students love my classroom library and I am very fortunate to be able to give them variety. I wanted to branch out and start getting books that students that are not mine can benefit from too. I am excited to bring more books to my school, so kids can keep them and enjoy. Thank you for supporting my project for my school.
