My Students

J.K. Rowling said, “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” I teach 4th grade students in a rural area. Many of my students come from low economic background and have many challenges set before them.

My students are caring individuals who strive to make our school a better place.

We practice kindness and inclusion of all students and my kids show respect and empathy for other students in our school. We are a kind class.

My Project

These books will begin to enhance my new 4th grade classroom library that with your help I can create. My classroom library is a place that my students will enjoy. They will settle in and get comfortable and they will travel to different places and encounter new adventures.

Every student book that is purchased for my library is special and will be treasured for years to come.

All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind in an attempt to engage them during independent reading and during classroom read -a-louds. Please help me share my love of reading.
