Ms. Cosner from Tallahassee FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wordy Wishes!

My Students

This is my third year as a teacher and every year, I continue to learn. Through the supportive staff, the amazing opportunities to grow as a teacher, I can't see what there isn't to love.

My 25 students are what drive me every single day to not only be a better person but to be a better teacher.

Their enthusiasm and love for learning is the light on the darkest of days. Although they all learn a different way, they always want to help each other within the classroom and outside of the classroom. As a teacher, I couldn't want anything more.

My Project

With a class of a lot of boys, I aimed this project towards books that they would like, selecting a variety of books so that will want to read .

I would like to foster a love for reading by getting books such as Plants vs Zombies, Saving Mr. Terput, and Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja that they like and that I know they will read.

Within this project, I also requested several picture books to teach diversity among them. I would like students to understand the different cultures that are around them in their everyday lives. I want to foster kindness, respect, understanding of the past and the future by reading these books.
