Ms. Hackett from Gordonsville TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books For Deserving Students

My students need these books to enable more opportunities for reading. Many of these are new and have been requested by my students.

My Students

Some of my students love to read. Others just need some encouragement, and I am hoping these new books will do just that.

My students come from various backgrounds, but the one thing many of them have in common is a lack of encouragement to read.

They have honestly never tried to read a book that wasn't assigned to them. They are good kids. Reading more could open up so many doors not just in English, but also in other subjects.

My Project

I am hoping these books, many of which are new, would encourage them to read more. If they see this one new book that looks good, they may also notice some older books as well. One book may catch their eye, and another and so on. More trips to the bookcase will equal a deeper understanding of the world around them.

These donations will encourage a continuance of reading.

Many of the books in my collection are ones that have already been read. Hopefully the traffic to my bookcase will peak the interest of those who have never checked it out. Some cannot afford to buy books. No student should be limited in this way. Books open up doors to new worlds.
