My Students

My students come to school each day full of the excitement to learn. They are full of questions and ideas! Most of them are eager to find answers and will keep inquiring all day long! I strive to point them all in the right direction and help them feed their curiosity. Many of my students struggle to read, but when they find a book about a topic they love, they are so very eager to tell me what they learned! Once they find a topic that interests them, they are eager to read all the books I have on it. Sometimes I feel like I can never have enough books to quench their thirst for knowledge.

My Project

These books will help me teach my students that their classmates may be different, but different is okay. A box of all the same color crayons is no fun to have and neither is a classroom with all the same students. We are all different in different ways and that is AMAZING! Help me teach my students that what makes us different makes us WONDERFUL! Help me teach them how to accept other for what makes them different. Help me teach them how to make this world a better place. These books have great messages and will make having those tough conversations a bit easier.
