My Students

I am the media specialist at a very small, rural school. What makes my school so special is the family bond that exists here. My school dates back to the early 1900s. Many of our students had parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great grandparents who attended. We currently serve grades K-8.

The thing I love most about my students is the school family atmosphere.

Our students have grown up together. The older students guide the younger ones to become future leaders.

My Project

My students are amazing readers and love to check out books from the media center. Unfortunately, our most popular books are falling apart. They have been checked out hundreds of times, and it shows! Pages are torn or missing and spines are broken. Some of the books have been taped so many times it is hard to turn the pages. In addition, sometimes I am so busy with classes, shelving, and computer issues I do not have time to repair books and they have to stay in the "Book Hospital" for an extended time.

My students would love to read new, spotless copies of their favorite books!

Because the books I selected are mostly hardcover or library bound they should last for many years.
