My Students

My third grade classroom is a place where every child has a safe haven!

The school where I teach has a very high poverty rate and is located in a highly rural area.

Many of my students live in transient homes. Our school combines three towns into one large school. Most of our classes have three for each grade level with an average of twenty students per class. We have a high special education population so many of the students we see are below grade level in literacy and mathematics.

My Project

During this time of uncertainty and school closures, students need a way to transport themselves away from the gloom and guilt many are facing.

Having books at home will enable my students to escape and see new sites or meet animals they would never have a chance to see in person.

These books will also ensure they keep up with their reading levels and prevent any slide.

With schools being closed, and many of my students' parents out of work, books at this time are a luxury that many cannot afford.
