My teaching journey started in 2006 as a 7th grade ELA teacher. It’s weird- teaching was never a career I had considered up until I got that job- yet now I can’t imagine myself doing anything else! My experience over the last 12 years has been largely with at-risk youth and those of a low socioeconomic status. These kids need a smile and a safe place to be and I am happy to provide that. One theme that has been common across my years in the classroom is that reading is simply not an activity many students enjoy. My mission is to change that. I want to provide my students with access to as many reading experiences as possible and allow them to explore who they are through books.

“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” -Jim Rohn”

What will funds be used for

Many of my students are not only reluctant readers, but also reading below grade level. I am a firm believer that daily reading not only improves comprehension and communication skills, but also provides structure and an opportunity to relax. I want to further stock my classroom library with high-interest texts, as well as purchase Kindles/Tablets that students can utilize during our daily reading time. I also would like to buy some comfortable seating and lighting for my classroom that will make it a more inviting and encouraging environment.
