My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are extremely hardworking and care a lot about their education. I teach at a Title I school in Richmond, Virginia where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many students receive backpack food on the weekend.

Despite many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students love to read and we take time each and everyday to read together. We have finished the "One Crazy Summer" trilogy by Rita Williams Garcia and my students want to see what she has come up with next.

We love diving into her stories and finding characters we can relate with.

We also need highlighters to brighten up our reading passages and pencils to write down all of our thoughts. To make the day more colorful we need bright paper to print our notes and passages on. First and for most I want to be able to give my students the materials they need to make everyday easier.
