My Students

My students are amazing, hard-working kids. They may not have a lot of money but they make up for that in heart and determination. They want to do their best and work hard each and every day. They come to school many times for a warm meal and a safe environment.

These kids deserve to be given a chance.

My goal is to give them the best possible one I can. That is why I am always seeking better opportunities for them. I believe that given the chance my students will be able to overcome the struggles of their current situations and will one day be teachers, lawyers and doctors.

My Project

I am requesting book collections that will be used by teachers to increase students' comprehension levels as they work to develop them into readers and writers. These book collections were picked specifically because of the skills that can be demonstrated through them.

Our students love great books and need more of them to continue to grow as independent readers.

Our teachers are working very hard to introduce our students to quality literature. They want them to see that published authors use the same strategies and skills that they are teaching them to use. The teachers use these books to show what good introductions or conclusions look like and to have the students find things like figurative language and imagery.
