My Students

My students come from all neighborhoods in our diverse city. We are a large comprehensive Title I middle school. My students speak Mandarin, Spanish, Tagalog, Samoan, Korean, Japanese, Danish, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Urdu, Farsi, and Arabic. They are eager to learn, create, design, and be part of a learning lab we call middle school! The library is being transformed into a Learning Commons, and our student lunch period is a wild time for exploration at the maker space tables. I have too many students vying to get into the library during lunch because they can do things with their minds, hearts, and hands. It is a vibrant, cooperative, and dynamic space that we cherish.

My Project

We are so lucky to have a school library. A library that is really large, full service, lots of places to tend to and take care of with just me. The "assistants" are vital and some contribute every day to keep the library running smoothly. Before school, they wipe tables, take down heavy chairs, make displays. During lunch, they work the desk, return books, organize the book cart then shelve the 100's of books.

I want to surprise them with book lovers socks, pencil bags, and totes.

They will feel super appreciated and know that their hard work and dedication matters. They will stay motivated to continue to volunteer and make our library a special place. The goal is to keep them coming to volunteer. We don't have any funding for an adult assistant.
