My Students

As the teacher-librarian, I am lucky enough to interact with each one of the 470 students in our vibrant and diverse community of learners. Our students embody passion, social justice, and hard work. Albert Einstein said, "Creativity is intelligence having fun" and our students prove it daily!

Our school is a community of educators and students that work hard every day to bring the very best educational experience to life.

We offer a community program and a dual Spanish/English immersion program. 54% of children attending our school qualify for free or reduced rate lunch. Because this number is below 60% our school no longer receives Title I funding, though there is still great need for support around equity and enrichment for our at-risk and high needs students, as well as the student body as a whole. Many of our students lack opportunities for a print rich environment at home. As the teacher-librarian at my school, I strive to get kids excited and engaged in reading for class and for fun! My goal is to cultivate curious and engaged lifelong learners.

My Project

I am looking to excite my students through the art of button making! With a pile of button parts and many ideas and ways to use them, I would like to have my 452 students create and design buttons for various school events, activities, and programs as well as to display their own interests and artwork.

The creative possibilities of button making are endless, and I know that our super students will make some amazing buttons to wear and share.

Our students take pride in the things they make, making buttons will boost engagement in school and provide a fun new way for student expression.
