My students love to read. They love read alouds, independent reading and sharing books with others. As we are reading, students try and connect with the characters. However, sometimes there is a disconnect. Most books that we have in our classroom are about white, middle class, straight people. My students are not reflected in the books we read, culturally, linguistically or in their various identities. Our classroom is incredible. It hosts eight languages and more personalities and cultures than you can imagine. I want my students to learn in an environment where diversity is encouraged, celebrated, and validated and in a classroom where those values are reflected in the books we read. In order to dream big, you first have to see yourself in that future position. My students need to see minority characters overcoming odds, becoming president, being confident in who they are, and celebrating diversity with all of these books.
