My Students

I'm a school librarian in NC I have been a school librarian for five years. I love the fact that I get to curate the love of reading, collaboration, and creativity with my students on a daily basis.

The students I work with are one of a kind!

My students come from very diverse backgrounds and learning abilities. They love to learn and love to explore new things. I have children who love to read and children who want to learn to read. In my library/media center, I have seen how students adapt and at the same time, are drawn to new media resources. I want the library to foster a love of all things library. Exposing the students to a variety of materials and possibilities is what I'm all about! I service many children, some with learning disabilities, and others with spectrum disorders. I want every student that enters the library to feel loved and excited and I want them to leave the library with a sense of accomplishment and know that they are creative in many ways.

My Project

The Cricut that I'm requesting for my students in the school library/media center will be a wonderful addition to our makerspace area. It will allow my students to explore and curate their creative side using all of the facets of the machine and its components.

We will be able to do so much with the Cricut.

We will be able to create a variety of bulletin board items and design presentation items for various research projects. We will be using the machine to create a Sensory path for those students (and teachers) who may need a moment to calm, balance, and focus their inner self. Finally, we will be using the Cricut machine to create some items that will be given as random acts of kindness throughout the community and school. I know that this new item will be received with such excitement!
