My Students

My students represent a wide variety of interests and backgrounds! These students are curious learners who are interested in a wide variety of literature genres. Every student has unique interests and our classroom should represent each student's interests!

Each student deserves the opportunity to fall in love with reading all over again with our classroom library.

My students deserve a classroom library that will represent their own diversity. These students will increase their love of reading through being exposed to a wide variety of genres that they find interesting.

My Project

These books will add to our classroom library by providing diverse reading material. These students are a diverse group and deserve diverse reading material! I would like for my students to be exposed to a variety of reading material so that they can grow as readers while also gaining a broader understanding of the world they live!

Our classroom is a diverse group of young learners who are learning about each other and the world around them!

These books will help provide my students with a broader perspective of the world around them. Please consider helping provide these books for my students.
