Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Through reading and storytelling my classes come alive! My students are learning to read, speak, and understand spoken Spanish. They are focused on attaining a life skill and expanding their opportunities through language acquisition.

I teach to the Middles!

My students are a diverse group of young people who are caring, funny, active, and curious. All of my students are in different parts of their journey of self-discovery. Their interests and passions change daily but their commitment to acquiring Spanish has not wavered.

My Project

Reading is one of the best ways to gain proficiency in a second language. A classroom library that promotes and values diversity and inclusion will allow my students to further improve their understanding of the Spanish language while preparing them for our multicultural world.

This project will empower my students by providing them with new reading material that reflects all student's identities and walks of life.

The titles I have selected for this library expansion address topics including immigration, multiculturalism, diversity and social justice. Thank you for your support in helping us develop our language acquisition and cultural competence!
