Knowledge Is Power

My students need books for the library that will peak their interest in reading and in science.

My Students

My students are from a small farming community where many of them never travel outside of a 45 mile radius. Many of their parents are hard workers who work many hours, and so the school is like a second home for my students. I believe I have a responsibility to expand the horizons of my students and encourage them to dream big. It's easy to take for granted basic life experiences or knowledge that many of my students miss out on. The school does a fantastic job, in my opinion, by going above and beyond, but I want to do more for the students.

My Project

These books will help to add new science related books to the school library which will lead to students improving their reading skills and passion for reading/science. Our current library has a very small section and we do not have a public library close by, so many students do not have access to quality books. Some students like science and would like to learn more, but they have limited access to materials outside of class. Since our school is in the middle of nowhere, internet options are limited and costly, so many students do not have access to the information which would help them in science. As a teacher I know I only have a limited amount of time with my students in class, and I want my students to continue learning outside of class. These books will provide students with more opportunities to learn and better prepare them for a future where STEM jobs will be abundant.
