My Students

Hello! I am starting my first year at a new school. I will be teaching English at a high school that serves students with special educational needs. I’m looking to build my library through class sets of books such as Lord of the Flies, Internment, Long Way Down, To Kill a Mockingbird, I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, amongst others. I am also looking to build my independent reading library with miscellaneous books.

Students will use these texts to encourage a passion for reading, building empathy, and developing necessary skills such as analyzing written words and being able to form ideas.

My Project

I’m teaching in a new school next year and need to rebuild my library from the ground up! The population I serve is exclusively students with special needs and access to engaging literature and shared texts is critical to their progress and success. Thank you for helping me bring the reader out in all of my students!

We will use these books for shared reading and experiences and for independent reading at home and in class.

Building an engaging, diverse library is critical for activating thinking for struggling students and I want to give them a library that they enjoy instead of one they roll their eyes at.

Thank you!
