My Students

My students come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. I have second-language learners, native English speakers, autistic students, struggling readers, avid readers, ADD and ADHD students, and students from low-class families. Many of the students added throughout the school year have been displaced from their homes in Puerto Rico because of Hurricane Maria.

At my school, the motto is "Live, Dream, Achieve".

My students know that wherever they come from has little bearing on where they're going. As long as they work hard, they can have whatever life they want. This applies especially to the students who are new to the country.

It is up to them and the choices they make to help them succeed. We have high academic and behavior expectations and they rise to meet the challenges set before them.

My Project

I am hoping that when my students walk into my classroom and see the bookcases filled with books it will inspire them to pick up a book and read it. The milk crates serve their purpose but I think the bookcases will make it easier for the students to see the books and keep the neat and organized.

These four bookcases will improve the atmosphere of my classroom.

I want my students to see bookcases filled with books and be curious about reading. I want them to know that the books aren't just there for decoration but are there for them to pick up and read. Helping me change the display of my classroom library will rekindle my students interest in reading.
