My Students

What makes my students special? Absolutely everything. All of my students receive special education services, most have a learning disability. Because of their learning disabilities, they struggle with grade level texts and are often left behind because of it.

We live in an economically depressed town with a high transient population.

Drug and alcohol addiction is a huge problem with students and adults. Educating our youth is the only way to break the cycle of addiction and poverty. Creating a classroom that is inviting and a safe place for students as well as providing them with the resources they need to be successful is essential.

Without the help from outside donors, creating a safe and productive learning environment would be next to impossible. i want to thank everyone who takes the time to read my proposal regardless of whether or not you choose mine to fund. It's because of people like you that my students stand a chance of bettering their lives. Thank you!!

My Project

Most of my students are struggling readers. Reading books is not something any of them do for fun, a lot of them do not read at all. Coming into my classroom is painful for some of them and I need to find a way to make them want to come to class and a way to realize reading is not just another subject in school, but a life long need!

Although I enjoy the classics that we all had to read in school, my students cannot relate to those books and require material that is relevant to their lives.

With newer books, I hope to hook them into reading! Wish me luck!!!
