My students come to me with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Many of them speak English in their homes, but many do not or speak another language in addition to English with their families.
Many of the families served by our school face economic hardships but their children come to school every day excited and eager to learn.
We are a low-income school with many students at risk for academic failure. We have a high percentage of students receiving free lunch and the mobile food pantry comes to our school once a month.
Many of my students do not have many books in their homes. By building my classroom library, I will be able to provide students with a greater variety of books to read in class and at home.
Students who love to read and love books become great readers.
By providing my students with a wide variety of books to choose from, more students will be able to find books that they love to read. I want to provide my students with books from a wide variety of authors and genres to expand their views and help them discover what they enjoy reading.
