Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students are eager and inquisitive, and, like all middle school students, they love to use their imaginations. They love to read, but many come from a home where books are not available and going to the public library is not an option. Many of my students are in charge of helping their younger siblings with their education.

Libraries are supposed to be the heart of the school, and we need open-heart surgery!

Our media center is outdated, and we need to transform it into space where students and teachers are excited to come, collaborate, and learn!

I am a new media coordinator in a Title I school. In our test-driven society, reading for pleasure often takes the back burner. My goal is to update our media center in such a way as to make children want to come in and read because reading is the number one way to improve test scores!

My Project

Our middle school has several classes of students who struggle with reading, many of whom have reading disabilities and other challenges. Many of our traditional students want to read with their little brothers and sisters. Our collection of "easy" reading books is outdated and the books are falling apart. These students need to know that they are worth it, for us to have great, quality books for them, just like everyone else!

Our struggling readers need quality books that inspire a love of reading and a love of literature.

We need new, award-winning books that cover a diverse range of topics, cultures, and stories. We need new books that encourage positive self-image, inclusion, and kindness.
