My Students

As a librarian in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to add to their library experience by providing my students with desperately needed books. They love to visit the library. It is a space where they can read, explore, create, and find solace to their day and lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households with limited English and receive free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". Having challenging and fulfilling library experiences for my students is my number one priority. I want to make their visit to the library an experience and develop their love for reading.

My Project

These art supplies will enhance the arts and crafts makerspaces offered through our library media program. Our school library is a place that students really develop a love of reading and offering opportunities for students to become illustrators while creating art pieces based on fiction and nonfiction books using paint, paper, and mixed media craft materials is an important motivation to develop lifelong readers. Every art makerspace in the library incorporates standard based projects with higher level thinking skills developed around fiction and nonfiction books. Our goal is to motivate students to read through activities based on art.

The donations to this project will help develop my students' love of reading by providing hands on artistic opportunities.
