My students need new baskets to hold and organize the classroom library.
My students are amazing. They are resilient. They are powerful. They inspire me every day. I don't know where I'd be if as a child I had been treated the way that some of my students have. They also have such a love of learning.
Ninety-eight percent of the students in my school qualify for free and reduced price lunch.
We have a full time school psychologist, behavior coach, guidance counselor and school resource officer. Many students are in foster care, have been removed from their home, or move multiple times during a school year.
I would like the book baskets to organize my classroom library and make it easier for the students to find what interests them and will keep them engaged during independent reading. My school was built in 1925 and has small classrooms so it's important to make things as accessible for the students as possible.
I grew up with a love of reading, and my goal is to pass that love onto all my students.
I already have a large classroom library with many different genres for the students to find their own passion.
