My Students

I work in a library in a school where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students love to read and check out books, and I love that I'm able to help them do that every day.

I feel lucky every day that I am able to help build our future leaders.

Despite what is going on in their outside lives, their spirits are high and they are always eager to learn and research new things. I am hoping to inspire each one of my students to continue on a path of academic excellence. From the minute they walk in the door of the library, I focus on their potential and how I can help them to achieve their goals.

My Project

This year to help I want to create a reading space for my students to use while in the library. I feel that having a fun and comfortable place to read will help to foster a love of reading.

A reading space should be warm, inviting and comfortable so students can enjoy the books they are reading.

Bean bag chairs will help my students to be comfortable and be able to enjoy the time they spend reading. With your help, I can transform our reading corner into our room's most inviting spot by providing a comfy seating option! Soon we'll need a waiting list for the independent reading center!
