Students at my school come together from varied backgrounds, cultures, and abilities to create a beautiful community that we call home. We offer different learning experiences for students based on family interest, a student’s learning preference, best fit for achievement, happiness, and overall school success.
We have both self-contained Montessori and Gifted classrooms, as well as our mainstream classrooms, so we are able to meet a large variety of learning styles and student needs.
My students are curious about how the world works, and I try to foster that curiosity with thematic interest-based learning, project-based curriculum, and hands-on learning experiences.
Our library is a place where teachers, parents, and students can come together and explore the world and people of the world through nonfiction books and the joy of reading with the fiction books offered.
As a child my mother went to the library weekly and chose books that inspired in me a love of reading and good literature and a curiosity to learn more about people and the world. As the school librarian I want to give my students this same gift.
I particularly remember the hard cover books and the Caldecott award winner books.
I loved the pictures and the cultural diversity of the books. The authors and illustrators were of particular interest to me, and I would always read the information about the author and illustrator first.
Hopefully these books will inspire our next generation of authors and illustrators. We are also requesting a few bookcases to display them.
