"I think there is something more important than believing: Action! The world is full of dreamers, there aren't enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision." - W.C. Stone

Please help my students advance in their education by giving them an opportunity to excel.

My students are beautiful. They are all brilliant, beautiful, capable, intelligent, motivated, and hardworking. They will all be amazing in their own away. My students are also all on free and reduced lunches. Some of my students do not have a house to live in, food to eat, or an extra uniform to wear each day. My students want to learn, they crave it and they hungrily devour all of the information I give them but they do not have the resources at school or at home to be literate learners. They have grown up with next to nothing and they somehow find a reason to smile each and every day and shine in their own way. They deserve the entire world yet have no idea what it means to experience the beauty in life.

My students are strong. My students are brave. My students are resilient. My students matter - help them know that.

My Project:
I am requesting that you provide my students a with non-fiction leveled library and learning charts to assist my students with disabilities. These resources will not only provide GREAT benefit for my students academically, but personally as well. My students will be able to witness first-hand how transformative and life-changing it is to be a selfless giver. My students will learn to "pay it forward" just as you have done so graciously for us. I want my students to believe that if they do their best, they give all that they are capable of giving, and they persevere through times of hardship, they will be rewarded - physically, mentally, and academically. I ask that you believe in the power of education and in the hope for a better tomorrow by providing the children of our nation with resources that will positively effect their learning. Student success is so imperative and I will fight for them with an unrelenting sense of urgency to reduce our nations literacy gap. Fight with me!

My project is so important to our classroom for many reasons. Leveled readers are invaluable resources that will enhance each students reading ability. My students will be able to read independently at school and take books home with them for extra practice each night. The more our students read, the more literate they will become. Help provide academic nutrients to the future minds of our nation. Help our young ones become literate and ultimately life-long learners.
