My amazing students come to school everyday excited to learn! Our small school has a mix of neighborhood kids as well as students bused in from another part of town. One special thing about our school is how culturally diverse we are! We celebrate our differences and the students have a place where they can feel safe and proud of who they are.
Many of our students are economically disadvantaged but that doesn't stop them from being awesome students!
They are sweet, funny and responsible! They put a smile on my face each and everyday!
One of my students favorite times of the school day is when I read aloud a book. They love having deep discussions about topics they might not normally read about on their own. We get a chance to practice reading comprehension strategies and how to share our ideas in a group. Sometimes we even get healthy debates going about opinions of the stories! We need 32 copies of the book Front Desk so we can learn about our community by reading together.
My students will love connecting with Front Desk, a book about a young Chinese immigrant trying to navigate life in California.
Many of my students will be able to personally connect with her story, while my other students will grow their knowledge of the world around them. Not every family gets to live in a big house, go on vacations and eat whenever they are hungry.
This book has so much to offer my students. They will become more empathetic, self-aware and more mindful future leaders after reading this book! I can't wait to share it with them.
