My Students

My students are the best. They deserve the best education possible. They will walk into the classroom full of life, ready to learn, and excited. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything. I want them to be confident that they can accomplish their goals and know that a good education can take them anywhere they want to go.

I teach in a Title I school.

Many of my students face hardships at home that are beyond their control. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all that they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

We need new headphones and books on CD for our listening center. The books that I have chosen to add to the listening center will enhance the print-rich environment that I strive to create in my kindergarten classroom. The books have also been chosen with my students in mind. The characters in the books are well-loved by the kids in my classroom.

The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.

My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
