The students at our middle school are the most genuine and kindest I've come across since I began teaching. They are exceptionally community and family oriented and that has been all the difference as we have yet again had to come together after the catastrophic damage from Hurricane Florence. Our entire school district is classified as Title I, and most of the schools have been identified as "at risk". As we are positioned in the notorious "Corridor of Shame", many of our students are tragically entrenched in a culture of poverty and despair. With so much funding decided on property value, our students are now enduring the fallout from a struggling economy more than ever. Yet despite these substantial hurdles, including Hurricane Florence, my students come and try and do their best daily. It is their hopeful and enduring spirit that has led me here for them. They deserve resources at least matching their amazing spirit!
It may seem hard to believe but after having just finished our first Harry Potter Book Study not that long ago the kids are hooked! Even the students who said they didn't like Harry Potter are begging to take the books home!
The kids have "Potter Fever" bad, please help us continue our book study by helping us get the next books in the series!
Without these titles the magic may stop and the idea of it is more than I care to consider.
The joy of reading is legitimately being experienced and shared on a large scale in an assigned book study series... and that is amazing! This could make the biggest difference in the future of my students than any other experience they have this year!
