As an ESL teacher and General Ed teacher working in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
Ninety percent of my students come from an immigrant family with working parents.
"Experience more by seeing more" is my goal for all my students.
Outside of the school, they do not have many opportunities to explore areas and places outside of their neighborhood and are not even aware of the great places that surround them. Many students do not even have books in their homes and are solely exposed to reading in the classroom. These students deserve the best education I can possibly provide them to help them reach their maximum potential and grow into positive contributors to society.
I want to help my students build a "productive struggle" mindset this year to help them conquer life difficulties in the future.
Just as the Walter Disney quote stated, there is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island. The more that they read, the more curious they will become. My students need a well-organized reading library for my classroom to help support my students' independent reading interests. With all of the bookshelf and leveled bins, my students will be able to have much clear access to all the books to choose from for their independent reading at school and at home.
The donations of this portable library cart will make a huge difference in my students' independent reading and will help build a good reading habit and a well-organized learning style.
