Mrs. Hardy from Falls Church VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Diverse Readers Need Diverse Books!

My students need diverse books because they are diverse readers. They also need more glue sticks because we are constantly running out of glue sticks.

My Students

The students at my school come from families who struggle to make ends meet. Most of my students are English Language Learners. All they want is a place to feel safe and to learn!

My students are curious and eager to explore the world around them and bring such life to the school day.

In my classroom they are historians and mathematicians, readers and writers; they are scientists and explorers. There might be some dancers and soccer players too! Their dreams are as big as their imaginations.

My Project

It is so important for readers to see themselves in the books they read. To have heroes and heroines who look like them, talk like them and think like them. It's also important to read about people who are not like you to build empathy and understanding of different people.

My classroom is diverse and I want my students to be able to read about characters like them.

For my reluctant readers I am always looking for books to pique their interest and to get them excited about reading. New books in the classroom library always get my students reading and excited about books.
