My students are a diverse group of excited individuals. Eighty percent of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and therefore attend a Title I school. Additionally, our school is an extremely diverse community of learners. The majority of my students come from a variety of backgrounds and speak a variety of languages. Many are newcomers to the country or refugees seeking asylum in America from their home country.
The students at my school are first and foremost learning how to harness leadership from within.
It is our hope that our students will walk away from their elementary education with a strong sense of purpose and a drive to accomplish that to which they put their mind.
Our students get excited for every learning opportunity they can harness. I am thrilled for an opportunity to provide them with materials that are instrumental to their continued success!
I want to provide my students with a plethora of books and titles about black characters written by black authors. I think it is important that my students see their culture in print and celebrated throughout their education. There is a misconception that black history has to be paired down to the same people and faces year after year and only during the month of February.
I want my students to ask questions about African American history and culture all year long!
This project will give my students plenty of books and characters to learn from and identify with. I am excited to get these books into my classroom!
