My Students

Our school serves 740 students with diverse backgrounds, representing many cultures. We are a Title 1 school with a high mobility rate. I serve as their librarian and am blessed to work with every student in grades K-5.

For many of our students, the library is their favorite place in the school and it offers them a chance to read, explore and create.

We are always looking for new ways to inspire and challenge our young learners. In the library, students learn about literature, coding, online etiquette and safety, and educational resources. We promote a love of reading everyday and aim to inspire our students with STEM activities through Makerspace.

My Project

Our school library is a busy place where students create, explore, and learn by building with hands-on activities.

My goal is to supplement what is happening in the classroom by offering activities that engage students in fun, meaningful STEM lessons.

Our school library is an open concept space that serves every student in grades K-5. Students look forward to their weekly library visits and enjoy spending time reading with their friends. With careful saving and spending, I have been able to provide a few STEM activities for our students to enjoy. These items will go a long way to help our students learn valuable critical thinking skills.
