My Students

Our classroom/media center is a collaborative work space made up of several areas: quiet reading space, larger instruction area, and maker space. Students choose reading for academic and personal use, work on project-based learning, and spend time exploring everything from construction to coding to electronics.

Our school is a middle school (6th-8th grades) with approximately 535 students, the majority of which are on free and reduced lunch.

Our school is a "community" school where we feel the support and investment of our local community. As with many schools, our county has experienced a major reduction in funding over the past few years.

My Project

An author visited our school last fall and introduced students to a new world. We want to give them a chance to continue that journey with signed/personalized copies of books one and two!

The Nyxia series offers students a chance to see themselves—vibrant and victorious—on the pages of great books.

Many of my students enjoyed Divergent, The Maze Runner, The Hunger Games, etc. Nyxia was a chance for many of them to read those same kinds of books, but with more representation and diversity in the characters featured. We also had an author visit from Scott Reintgen, which gave students a chance to ask questions, get books signed, and see the importance of writing and reading in action. This project would allow students to continue that valuable journey by getting their hands on copies of the second book of a series that has hooked them. Our goal is to provide more access to great books for our students, and to slowly transform every student into a lifelong reader, who walks into the world with more information, more empathy, and more perspective because of those habits.
