My Students

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." -Malcolm X

My students are amazing in every way possible.

Hardworking, persistent, creative, and intelligent-they are all capable of attaining their goals and ambitions. My students attend a very small school in a very small town, so it sometimes hard to get materials that they need because of limited funds.

I have no doubt that my students will go on to do amazing things, and it is because of their potential that I want the best for them. Please help me prepare my students for tomorrow by preparing them today!

My Project

My students go to a very small school in a very small town. Our library doesn't have a lot of new titles, and many that we do have are worn and need to be replaced. These books will help students be excited about reading and will help them learn new perspectives.

It is important that our students have the opportunity to read all kinds of books.

It is our duty to provide the resources that they need to become well rounded and open minded adults. These books will help bring our library to our current day and age.
