My Students

My students are amazing people who always try their best to do well in school. They are motivated individuals who face many adversities yet continue to strive in order to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. The majority of our student population is from a low socio economic background and many of their parents are field workers. Many of my students participate in community service, while the others through school clubs organize food and toy drives as well as fundraise to give back to the community. They are very deserving!

My Project

My students need more book options to engage in independent reading outside of classroom time. Every year I find myself encouraging them to read and constantly showing them books that I have in my classroom library. My students are constantly reading, the books get worn out and unfortunately that discourages students. I'm constantly buying new books for my class and looking for ways to bring in books through donations.

The past few years we have been noticing more and more students facing issues of depression and suicide.

Reading can serve to help them cope with some of life's issues. These Chicken Soup for the Soul Books are targeted for teenagers to help them learn about life. The students gravitate to these types of books and learn valuable life lessons that help them develop resilience and strengthen their mental health.
