My Students

Our school serves a low income, high needs population. The school over the last several years has seen a decline in enrollment due to school choice/lottery policies. Despite this decline in enrollment, we continue to push for high achievement and innovative practices, and it is because of this that I am seeking to improve a classroom library for extensive choice reading. Our kind and hard-working kids will respond to the high interest engaging texts and through interacting with them and each other, we can potentially change their lives. A great book can inspire and change a person. It can draw a person in and open doors to new ideas. It can give a student a new way of looking at things. Our kids deserve nothing less than this.

My Project

Book love works some kind of magic on our students. I cannot express the excitement that engaged readers display over a new title or the next book on their list. It's been a brilliant experience watching the joy cross their faces, and it's tough to tell them, sorry, I don't have a copy of that book you're so excited to read. Does the library have it?

Providing an extensive and diverse classroom library to my students is an essential aspect for engaging readers.

Students need books with characters that look like them, as well as books that pique their interest. They ought to see themselves, their experiences, and their dreams represented on my shelves. This project works to do just that.
