Mrs. Berger from Marshall MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bonkers for Books

Help me give my students the book Pack of Dorks by Beth Vrabel. We have scrounged up enough money to bring her to our school. I would like to give her books away to students.

My Students

My students are amazing. They come from diverse backgrounds and at least four different languages are spoken in our school. Many of our kids are first generation Americans. They work hard and come to school with a vivacious want to learn.

As amazing as our student are, they face many challenges that effect their ability to succeed.

Most of them live in poverty and don't have access to basic needs. Despite this, they amaze me! They love to read and are always fighting to read the next great book we get in. My library is the living room of the school, and students are always found hanging out and being themselves. Teaching my students is the greatest job in the world!

My Project

In eight years as a library media specialist in our small, rural town, I have never had the ability to bring an author to speak with our students. Due to several lucky circumstances, the right opportunity arose and we now have a famous middle grade author coming to our school in November. Her name is Beth Vrabel, and she is a writing rock star!

My student want so badly to read her books before she comes to visit, but we only have one of each book in the library and most students can't afford to buy one on their own.

I would love to give away 50 of Ms. Vrabel's books so that as many students as possible can read her book Pack of Dorks and fall in love with her entertaining writing. Given my limited funds, I can't afford to purchase these books on my own.
