My Students

I teach incredible third grade kiddos. They fill each day with hugs and laughter. My students are eager to learn and grow.

My kiddos don't come from much, but they deserve the world.

I hope to impact their hearts as much as they have mine.

My Project

These books and materials will help me create a print-rich classroom. I strive to provide appropriate reading levels so my students have the freedom to pick up a good book and independently read. In my school and classroom, character and social emotional growth is a main focus.

With these books and sensory materials, my students will flourish as independent readers with growth mindsets.

My students LOVE to read. They will care for these books and become even better people because of them. When we leave the classroom they are always worried about the book they are reading staying safe on their desk for when they get back. This project will give me the ability to provide a diverse class library that will encourage my students to continue to fall in love with reading.
