My Students

My students come from various diverse backgrounds. With that knowledge, it means my students have differing levels of interests, reading selections, and reading skills.

Weekly, time is set aside in my classroom for students to read from a book of their choice.

When possible, I am reading alongside them.

Aside from diverse backgrounds, these students have various interests and various reading levels. For many students, it is difficult to get access to books at home or the local library. Sharing the school library among all twelve grades also poses an issue.

My Project

To get my students more excited and interested in reading for fun, I need to seriously update my Adolescent/Young Adult book collection.

Every study shows that the more a student reads, the more successful they are in the classroom, on tests, and in their post-secondary education.

It is a no-brainier that simply having students read weekly is an important job for any English teacher. Each nine weeks, my students are responsible for reading a book of their choice (on top of the texts read as a class). Your donation will allow for me to have a larger range of choices available to my students. From books like _UnBroken_ that spark students' interest in determination and war to _Hillbilly Elegy_ that is set less than one hour from our school, I hope we can offer my students books to inspire and connect them to the world around them.

While my classics may interest a few students, the larger amount of my students do not choose to read for fun. I need books that will reach out to them and their interests. From survival books to books that explore teen-specific issues, I need it all! Help me create readers for life!
