My Students

Maya Angelou said “In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” You will see this beauty in my students as they come running through the doors in their mismatched shoes and brightly colored hijabs. You'll hear it in their words as they say goodbye to their parents in Spanish, Karen, Bosnian, Burmese, and Somali. (Our students speak 13 different languages.) You'll feel their strength as you watch them translate for their parents, walk their siblings home and care for them.

My students are diverse, beautiful, and strong!

They also love books and can't wait to discover the new arrivals at our library. They love to see themselves in books and find ones that include their languages so parents can read to them at home.

My Project

All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. Some books are requests directly made by my students and some books will reflect my students and their experiences in the world.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
