I work at an AMAZING elementary school. My students come from a rural, small town. Many of my students come from low income homes.
After being a classroom teacher in the county for many years, I am now lucky enough to be the librarian here, which means I get to see all 515 of our students every week!
In the library, we get to share good news, swap funny stories, discuss good books, complete STEM projects, and just enjoy being together in a more relaxed school setting. I want to use this wonderful opportunity to impress upon these kids a love for books, as well as learning.
As a classroom teacher, now librarian and a parent, I know how important reading is in the education of a child. Sometimes getting a kid excited about reading is just a matter of putting the RIGHT book in their hands.
Looking for a good mystery, try.... Want to escape into a fantasy, try.... How about a little funny at the end of a hard day, ....
There are more possibilities than ever with the list of available books. Help me put them in our library and into the hands of a child. A good book can make all the difference.
