Ms. Javier from Jersey City NJ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Am Malala

My students need the I Am Malala books in order to complete their last requirement before they graduate. We need books that they can relate to, and that are current events.

My Students

What makes my students’ special is a very loaded question. My students are mostly from low income families, very diverse coming from Hispanic, African American, and Asian backgrounds, and full of character.

There is not one day when I am not tearing up with their shenanigans.

They honestly do try their hardest at school, and they make me proud. There are 42 of them and all 42 are amazing in their own way. Many of them are classified, and others very low educationally.

My Project

Many of our students have not traveled outside of their City (Jersey City). They are required to read one more book before they graduate as a class. We have read The Diary of Anne Frank or Greek Mythology, but they need to be exposed to current events, to current people making a change. They need to read of countries and cultures of Today! They relate to Anne Frank on an age level, but would be able to relate to Malala in reference to the Taliban, words they hear about today. They will also be able to appreciate their freedoms, those they don’t know they have for an education.
