My Students

Teaching is never easy. This year, more than ever, will be a challenge for teachers everywhere. I feel blessed to teach middle school, but I know this year will be much different than years past.

For many students in our middle school, books are their ticket to explore new worlds.

I've quickly learned that over the past six months of isolation, the majority of our students have not been reading. These are amazing kids, but many of them don't get the chance to go outside our rural boundaries. Reading is one way to help expose them to possibilities beyond and to open their minds to new ideas and adventures. We've decided to encourage reading this year through Bingo and an author of the month feature.

Our middle school is home to approximately three hundred and fifty, bright and talented students. We are a rural school in northern Idaho, and the majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

In grades six to eight, we intentionally expose students to a wide variety of genres. The staff has worked hard to create an independent reading program that prepares them for high school and beyond. When students come with excitement about the book they are reading, that is a wonderful gift!

There is nothing like the excitement on a student's face when they find a book they absolutely love!

Since we have decided to add "Author of the Month" this year, we need to access copies of those books for students to check out.

These books will be available for students to select as part of the Bingo and Forty book challenge. Our goal is to encourage a love of reading in our students, so we're always trying to be creative so support them on this reading journey!
