My Students

My students are culturally diverse. Their diversity is their commonality, however. My students don't focus on their differences. They accept each other as they are. This is what makes them special in my eyes.

My students are curious.

They seek to explore the unknown and they prefer to do that in a hands-on manner. A majority of my students don't have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities that support or enhance their education. School is often their only connection to a brighter future.

My Project

My students love books--especially graphic novels and humorous stories. These books get circulated so often, though, that the wear and tear on them is greater than many of the other books in the library. Unfortunately my book budget isn't very large, so purchasing several copies of the same title is generally not an option.

This book-covering system will protect the books so that more students can read them.

In addition to protecting the jackets of the hardcover books, we will also be able to add covers to paperback books. Since paperback books are generally cheaper, purchasing and protecting them using this cover system will help us get more of the titles that the students really want to read.
