Ms. Tully from San Ramon CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Read to Know that We're Not Alone

Help me give my students some great books to read, please. I picked these books from a variety of genres and reading interest levels to meet the needs of all of my students.

My Students

I teach 85 adolescents, but I also learn from them. As a teacher, I hope to help my students plant seeds of future learning, to explore new ideas, to gain a shared experiences, to become the type of creative, literate thinkers to succeed in college, to do well at work, to have meaningful conversations, and to find solutions to present and future problems. Our future is in the hands of these young adults and I take my job very seriously.

My Project

Students who read independently become better readers and writers, have better vocabularies, score higher on tests, and have greater content knowledge than those who do not. So, the most important thing I can do is to provide my students with a wide variety of books that grab their attention.

You won't get a bigger bang for your buck than by providing students with books that they will enjoy reading.

Successful authors Pat Conroy and Gary Paulson will be the first of many to tell you that reading quite literally saved their lives and made them who they are today. The donations to this project will provide more books for my students to read independently. The more kids read independently, the more they will grow as readers, writers, thinkers, and learners. Reading matters.
