Mrs. Meek from Charlotte NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Our students are quite unique as they have had to audition to attend our school of the arts. They are creative and imaginative from all walks of life and economic backgrounds. Using a hands-on approach and "learning by doing," students are taught the arts by both full-time professional teachers certified in their arts disciplines and area and national professionals who teach master classes throughout the academic year.

The students in my school represent a diverse range of cultures, interests, and needs.

While some are affluent and others are disenfranchised, all of my students display an enthusiasm for education that reflects their experience, challenges their perspective, and broadens their worldview.

My Project

During the current time we face at home and the uncertainty of how the fall will look for my students, I would like to build my classroom of hard-copies of British novels to help reach students of mine (seniors) who may not be able to access them with technology.

Please help me place novels in my students' hands so they can continue learning.

Reading can open so many doors for students and can offer an escape from current situations, if needed. Being able to offer ALL my students novels will ensure learning will continue.
