My Students

My students live in a small, rural, farming community. I have been their librarian since fall 2018 and we have had so much fun reading stories together. The students are creative and curious, and are becoming avid readers. The transition to learning at home has been difficult for them, but they remain strong and inquisitive and interested in learning and reading.

My Project

In our time apart for distance learning due to COVID-19, the need to connect to others within our community has become more apparent than ever. I would like to give my school community an opportunity to connect through literature. I would like to provide every household with a copy of the book Wild Robot by Peter Brown.

This book is a story about a robot connecting, adapting, surviving, and loving; in real life, this is what we all need to do.

I believe this book will inspire my students, and through reading together as a whole school community, we will be closer, even when we are apart.
