My Students

I want my students to use the classroom as a place to explore their curiosity and discover new perspectives. The students I have had the pleasure to get to know over my first year of teaching are brilliant and eager to learn. They have proven their ability to push the bounds of expectation and achieve greatness. Many of them challenge themselves by getting involved in Hi-Q, a quiz formatted competition that tests academic knowledge. Many others are a part of student-council, practicing and growing in leadership. I have had the pleasure to watch them perform in sports, drama, and music. The community of this school is very small and close knit. Though I like to brag about their achievement, many come from backgrounds of poverty or difficult home life. As their teacher, I want to provide them with the best education.

My students need the resources to feed their ever-growing curiosity.

Sadly, I do not have the budget to provide them with all the books and supplies they need to discover and succeed. I am grateful for your consideration as I embark on guiding our young people through their own education.

My Project

As a new English teacher, I have learned that it is necessary to provide books in the classroom, but do not have the resources to fund a classroom library. From day one, I want my students to explore books that interest them in order to sustain reading habits, however, students struggle to find books that they can connect with at ready availability. Often, my students come to me seeking suggestions or advice on what to read, but I have no books to offer them.

With independent reading every day, a classroom library would allow students to experiment and explore multiple genres by simply walking to the classroom bookshelf.

By offering a book collection in my classroom, I am able to personally assist my students in selecting a book they will enjoy. As of now, if the student is not enjoying a book, they must wait until they can find time to visit the library again, return the book, and pour over the overwhelming selection in search for a new one.

A book collection is an excellent tool I can use to engage my students in reading and learning. Afterall, an English teacher without books is like an artist without a brush.
