My Students

As a teacher in a high poverty community, the students I teach don't always have some of the opportunities they deserve. What they do have are great teachers and administrators who are committed to giving them the best education possible!

I am lucky enough, as the library media specialist, to get to see and teach all 400 of the students at our school!

Many of our students receive free and reduced lunches and face hardships at home. Our school is a safe place where students are excited to learn new things! We strive to help our students see the value in getting a great education and learn everything they can to be successful citizens in the future!

My Project

We are no longer preparing our students to work in assembly lines or in repetitive jobs that require very little critical thinking or problem-solving skills. Our students today need to have these important skills which can be developed through a Makerspace community in our school library.

Makerspace areas are designed to engage students in these important 21st-century learning skills.

Students will be able to collaborate, explore, think creatively, and solve authentic problems in a shared space with their peers. We have the room to start a Makerspace in our school library but we currently don't have a lot of materials needed to make it a great space for kids to get the hands-on, STEAM learning they need to be successful in the future.

Many of the students that come through our doors love to read and are here to find a great, new book but I would love to have the materials to create a space to get more students excited about coming to the library to collaborate, explore, and discover using a variety of tools and materials!
