Mission Accepted!: Provide Books that Students are Asking For!

My students need the books that they've been asking for by their favorite authors such as Laurie Halse Anderson and Brandon Sanderson!

My Students

I teach 8th grade English Language Arts at an incredible public middle school in the Bronx, New York. Our students are fighting to receive the best education possible while reckoning with the circumstances of living in the poorest congressional district in the United States.

The students of my classroom are incredibly sweet, but more importantly, they are so curious and eager to learn!

They have a voracious, insatiable desire to acquire knowledge, but do not have many books at home, if any.

My Project

These books would do wonders for our classroom library! Not only would these books find a loving home in our classroom this year, but students in the years to come will have the opportunity to read them, be inspired, and become more skilled readers. At any given time, all of the students at our school have a book that they are reading, solely based on their interest such as The Way of Kings or Twisted. Our students read between classes, while they wait for more instruction, when they finish a class assignment early, and whenever else they have free time in school. In addition, after lunch, we have a designated time called "SSR" or Sustained Silent Reading, where students have about 30 minutes to just sit and read their captivating book. Some of our readers are so hungry for stories and knowledge but have no books at home.

These books, that you can help provide, will empower our students with a range of books to choose from, to capture their imaginations, increase their reading level, and stimulate their young minds for years to come!

They have specifically requested these titles from authors they like and would love to read them!
