My Students

So often I watch my students read and by the end of the story they have no idea what they have just read! I want to teach them to think beyond the text.

My students attend a Title-1 public school.

They come from many different countries and often do not have the luxury of books at home. However, when they walk into my classroom they are filled with wonder and excited to get a good book in their hands.

My Project

Through this donation my students will not only learn new skills, I will as well. I have requested teaching resources to enable lessons to be more engaging. I have also requested books to use as read alouds for the students. With these materials my students will be able to think beyond multiple choice and true/false. They will truly be able to think for themselves, all while enjoying great literature!

I can think of several books that have deeply impacted my life.

This is a gift that I hope to give to my own students. Literature can be a wonderful escape to a student with a hard home life. I want my students to go beyond their greatest desires, and a good book is a perfect start!
