My Students

My students are wonderful and make getting up for work exciting and rewarding. While it is my job to teach them, I learn so much from my students. Many of their families work two or more jobs to provide for their family. We work as a team to provide their children with the best possible education. Our school is a Title I, inner city, K-5 elementary school. We have a large Hispanic population and an Autistic and English as a Second Language strand.

My Project

What made you a better reader this year? That was the question I posed to my students who improved by two to three grade levels last year. What I heard did not really surprise me. Students reported that I introduced them to books that really interested them and they started reading more. I currently have five bookshelves and a table full of books. However, there are more books in storage that I can not put out because I need another bookshelf. I also plan to keep buying more.

We do not have a school library, so for many of my students, I am the only person who will lend them a book to read at home.

When books are organized by reading level and series, it is easy for students to quickly help themselves to books of interest and start reading. I believe that if I instill a love of reading in my students they will become life long learners.
