My students are the best! I live right by our school, so they often see me walking my dog (Milo) in the neighborhood. I feel so lucky to not only be their neighbor, but also their librarian. Our school serves PreK - 6th grade students on Chicago's west side. My 700 students visit the library once per week. We are fortunate to be one of less than 120 libraries left serving over 500 schools in CPS. Over 95% of our students come from a low-income household and are eligible for free/reduced lunch. I have many students who came from other countries like Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Brazil, and Guatemala, all seeking a better life. My students deserve so much more than their home surroundings often afford them. I give them my all each day to make sure they know this.
