My Students

This is my first year at my school and I have discovered the students have a passion for learning. I learned very quickly they have not been introduced to some of the incredible current literature that is available. It is my desire to bring these new titles to the classroom where they can have constant access to them. They have already devoured many of the books I was able to bring with me and now I would like to add novels to the classroom library to give the students an opportunity to experience these new adventures.

Cicero wrote, "A room without books is like a body without a soul." Help me bring soul to their classroom.

I have been teaching 6th grade for over 20 years and have witnessed the power of a well stocked classroom library. It is my desire to stock their classroom library with as many new novels that the students will be able to relate to and enjoy. Studies show that students with a well stocked, updated classroom library read 50%-60% more than their peers who do not have that same access.

My Project

The titles listed will be combined with other titles previously purchased to offer the students a wide variety of book choices from multiple genres. We have requested books with a variety of different cultural backgrounds so we could expose our students to the diverse community we live in.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books and that is kind of the same thing!!

Your donation will bring such joy to the classroom. Students are hungry for new titles and eagerly await for me to share the times I go to the bookstore and bring in that book I know they just need to read. The new books these students are introduced to, do not spend much time on the shelf because students are quick to check them out as they are returned. These new titles are guaranteed to be checked out quickly and often.
