My Students

My students are awesome and they love learning! They are unique and they each bring something special into my classroom. I teach all subject areas to my students. My class of 20 students contains five students of various disabilities and fourteen students that are limited English proficiency.

I teach at a Title I school where 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

They have limited life experiences to draw from, but they have a positive mindset and motivation to learn.

My Project

These books would be a wonderful asset to our classroom library. All the books are Sunshine State Young Readers Award books for the state of Florida for the 2018-19 schoolyear. They are must-haves and students eagerly wait to get their hands on them....sometimes waiting weeks before a book becomes available in our school library. I would like two of each title to add to our classroom library, so all my students get the opportunity to read them.

Students are especially motivated to read these books.

If they read them all, they are able to participate in our school district's annual Book Bowl. It is there that they showcase what they know about each book while competing against other elementary schools in the district. They earn special recognition for this accomplishment!
