My Students

Being a library media specialist, I get the honor of teaching every grade level in the school. My students range in age from 5 to 12 years old, and every single one of them breathes life into the library media center.

As a Title I school in southern Florida, the vast majority of my students come from low-income households.

Many students are in foster care or are even forced to battle homelessness. These factors, however, have no effect on the positivity and enthusiasm they bring to the media center. My students are eager to innovate and anxious to become better readers. They adore interacting with technology and would love the opportunity to do it more of it. They are creative problem-solvers and lively conversationalists.

I have never laughed or smiled as much as when I'm in the presence of one of my passionate kindergarten classes. I have never pondered a new perspective or been challenged in my ways of thinking as much as when I'm with my inquisitive fifth graders. Each of my 600+ students crafts a distinct identity with their storytelling, information literacy, and digital citizenship - we just need your help to continue our growth!

My Project

To boost literacy and supplement classroom instruction, I will start literacy and STEM centers in the library. Thus far, my efforts have been limited to activities involving basic classroom supplies. I would love to add more hands-on experiences for the scholars! Included in my cart are various reading and phonics games, big books, and interactive story kits for the students to explore with at the tables during checkout time. I have also included an easel and LEGO boards to make a Lego wall, so that the students can respond to engineering challenges!

Giving my students the ability to explore these curricular concepts in an informal setting will help with their confidence and ability to take risks in the classroom.

I hope to provide these budding scholars with not only literacy and problem solving skills, but to continue to show them that reading can be fun and not only associated with testing!

These centers will include reader's theater, story crafting, engineering challenges, and various games for comprehension and word building! The sky is the limit when students starting making curricular connections in a creative, safe space.
