My Students

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”

― Frederick Douglass

My students and I work and learn in a Title 1 school in rural NC.

Our mission there is to create life-long learners who are responsible, respectful, and safe. And my diverse group of students work hard to meet those goals. They spend 180 days learning how to read and practicing within my reading workshop. But so many of them do not have access to rich reading materials at home.

Many of these kids are English Language Learners. And many come into my class with limited exposure to story tellers, read aloud experiences, and knowledge of American heroes. They are often on their own to find good books. They want to be free, to be “somebody,” and with more opportunity to read can become so.

My Project

My goal is to grow my classroom library so I can let my students sustain their reading momentum at night and on the weekends. My library needs more nonfiction and award winning literature.

With more biographies and rich literature, I will provide materials through which these kids will find support for their own dreams.

My students will be able to self-select a book or magazine every week to keep in their backpack so they are never without an opportunity to read. Plus, they will not worry about the stigma associated with having to admit they do not have anything to read.
