My Students

I love my students and our school community - GO BULLDOGS! As a title-1 school, Fern Bacon is a truly diverse campus and our students are funny, smart, and resilient. My students are athletes, artists, caring family members, dedicated scholars, and so much more.

My students are passionate about many things, and I want one of those things to be reading!

Anything! Any book is a good book in my classroom, and as a second year teacher I am still very much building up my classroom library. With this project, I hope to update my collection with new, relevant young adult novels which have characters and authors that look like my students and inspire a love of the written word.

My Project

These books will be an amazing addition to my classroom library, which is still a work-in-progress as a second year teacher.

I teach English and require my students to read every day, so I want them to have access to fun, new, relevant young adult titles to help them develop a love for reading!

The books on my list feature authors and characters who look like my students, authors who I know are student favorites, and books and series across genres to reach my reluctant readers and voracious readers alike. Any donation towards our library is greatly appreciated by myself and my students!
