Working in the projects of New York City with special needs students is often overly demanding and rewarding all in one day. My students suffer from a lack of resources that would allow them to enjoy reading and get lost in an author's world. I want for my students to have the chance to love reading and use their imaginations. In our public school we are very limited with reading materials and are often using books from long ago that they can't relate to. I want them to have the same chance I had as a student to fall in love with the escape that can come while falling into a good read.
