One of the things that I love about my students is their passion towards reading. It is hard for them to put down a book when they are given the opportunity to read for a long period of time. Something that I love about my students is their emotional flexibility. For a lot of them, I am the first male teacher they have ever had and they are not used to that. They have gotten much better.
What makes my students special is their willingness to try their hardest at any task given.
A majority of my students unfortunately come from tough backgrounds and coming to school is a happy relief for them. It makes me happy to see them come in to school every single day smiling.
Currently, our library has very outdated books in it. Although it is still considered reading material, the books are in rough shape. By helping me fund this project, it will provide my students with a good quantity of brand new reading material that they will enjoy reading. I think this would be a good gift for them to come into after Christmas vacation.
Having brand new books will help my students continue the passion they have towards reading.
It is important for them (especially from the background that the majority come from) to feel happy to come to school every day. This library will will go a long way in helping achieve this goal.
