My Students

Over all, my new students are at-risk, and a majority are English Language Learners who have a love of learning. They're kind, considerate, dedicated to success and full of optimism. I am so proud to announce that I have been given the opportunity to be their new Librarian!

With this opportunity, I will be serving not only the general population but my special needs population as well!

This includes students with Autism, Developmental Delays and Social Emotional concerns whom also have a love of learning, kindness, consideration and dedication to success.

My Project

My first year as a librarian has ended and I've learned a lot from my students. The one thing I've pick up on is that they absolutely thrive while using their creativity. According to them, the best moments they've had in library is when they're able to use various materials to connect to the stories we've read. Watching them create a House for Hermit crab out of Legos was amazing.

Imagine what they will make with Magnetic Blocks and Click-A-Brick blocks after listening to Bravelands, the Gingerbread Cowboy, Elephant and Piggie and Jack and the Beanstalk!

The possibilities are endless.
