My Students

Welcome to our 5th class of bright and talented learners!

My students are a wonderful, inquisitive group of children who need to see the benefits of learning and where it can take them.

They are fun-loving, energetic, and always trying to make the most out of life. We are situated in a lower-income neighborhood on Oahu, and I would love to offer my kids more... more fun, more engagement, more opportunities, and more resources than they can see for themselves.

My Project

Chapter books are urgently needed for the students in our school! Our students have yet to discover a love for reading, and it greatly impacts their desire to learn.

These books will be used to help broaden our students' horizons as they discover a love for reading and increase their language arts skills.

They will be part of a quarterly book club/literature circle to delve deeper into reading.

Students will be able to take home these books as well so that they can share their reading adventures with their families. These titles were specifically chosen to relate to student lives and the world we live in.
