My name is Amy Momsen. I teach 3rd grade ELA at Dermott Elementary. Where I teach is very low income, high poverty area. Reading scores are below level. As a reading teacher, my passion for reading and teaching come full force. I want my students leaving my class on grade level. I work hard all year to pull those levels up and it takes lots of work. I know that each student is more than just a test score and I want each of my students to shine. If you are helping me, you are helping each one of them succeed.

those that know, do. those that understand, teach.”

What will the funds be used for

I teach in very rural area, that is low income. My students are all on free-reduced lunches. My students have limited access to many things most children take for granted. I teach reading. The reading levels in my class are all below grade level. My passion is to allow each student a chance to succeed and reading is where it’s at. I do reading groups and interventions that help my students greatly. The funding I am asking for is for my classroom. From books, to tables/chairs, reading supples, and anything that I can use to help reach my students. Teaching is my passion, and reading is what I live for.
