My students are thinkers, my students are learners, and my students have a great love for school but they do have challenges because they live in an inner city. Most of my students' socioeconomic status is low poverty. A few of my students do not even have a permanent address, they move from house to house. One unique positive trait about my kids is that they do not let these life issues stop them. In my classroom you will find exceptional students, English language learners from around the globe, and traditional students.
I teach at a creative arts school and I have never met such an amazing group of talented and artistic children.
They have a love of learning and they work hard. Their present situation should not determine their future. Where they are from should not determine where they will go. I am determined to make sure my students have the best resources available to achieve all of the goals they set for themselves.
My classroom consists of a diverse group of students so it is only right that my classroom library reflects these groups of students. My students and I just love the "Who Was" book series. This school year I have been checking these books out from our public library. Unfortunately there is a time limit on these books and all the kids want to read them. It would be a joy to have our own copies of these books so each child could enjoy reading these wonderful books.
I have chosen these particular "Who Was" books because I want my students to see and read about important people in history that reflect their culture.
In this order I have asked for books about important African American, Hispanic, Native American and female figures in history.
