My Students

I am teaching a wonderful group of 9th graders. My main focus will be in special education, reading and writing at our school!

Many students struggle with having the necessary supplies for their school year!

No student should ever have to face these circumstances. That is why I am seeking out donations, so I can supply my students with these materials. This will be one less burden they will have to worry about. So please, if you can help me out by either donating or sharing. One day, all children will have an equitable education!

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students will enjoy while increasing their reading level. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. 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.
