My Students

My students are considered to be economically disadvantaged, with close to 90% of the student body receiving free or reduced lunch. Many students are raised by single parents or by people other than their parents, such as foster parents, grandparents, or family friends. With the Covid-19 pandemic, our students were given the option to participate in distance or in-person learning. Most of my students have chosen to attend school in person.

My students love the school library media center and enjoy having the chance to come to the media center with their classes.

Many students check out new books each day. They make reading recommendations to each other and are the best source of suggestions for additions to our library collection. My students' passion for their favorite authors and subjects are the driving force behind the activity of the school library media center.

My Project

Like most school library/media centers, my media center has solid oak, traditional library furniture that is difficult to move around the room. Students working on their Chromebooks in the media center have the choice to use their devices at the tables or on top of the shorter bookshelves, but they do not have any workspaces that can move with them around the room. This project is designed to change the way students work in the media center.

Providing students with mobile workspaces and standing desks will promote student work in the school library media center while maintaining social distance.

Having portable tables will allow students to work in different areas of the media center where the bulky, traditional tables do not fit. Students will be able to take their work with them on a table as they move around the media center, conducting research, and gathering information.
