My Students

My students visit our school library both on their own and with their classes. They eagerly flock to my shelves to read books that spark their interests. Keeping the library shelves stocked with compelling books, and keeping those books in good condition, can be a difficult task.

My students are a great bunch of kids, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

With all of my students, nearly every genre and subject are in demand. When students have access to books that interest them, they love to read. Our students tend to be less economically well off, and I want to ensure that they still have equal access to the materials that are available to students in wealthier neighborhoods.

My Project

Getting students to read can be difficult. While some of my students are highly interested in stories, others are quite reluctant. When school starts back up in the fall, I'll find myself with a whole new batch of students -- kids who will have been out for school for six months! I want them to start off the year on a good note, by reading.

The best way to keep kids reading is by giving them books they actually enjoy.

The Dogman books, Jedi Academy, Babysitters Club, and other fun fiction and graphic novels capture the interest of my students and make them actually want to read. By providing more access to interesting books, more students will read.

Thanks for all your help!
