My Students

I teach at an elementary school in a rural community of North Florida.

Being in a rural community, we see all income levels throughout our school.

Students are from households of all shapes and sizes. Students at my school have a mostly positive disposition and we have teachers who go above and beyond in order to serve our students.

We live in rural county in Florida with a 19.6% poverty level. The county seat of Lake Butler holds our only elementary school, where we currently have about 1,200 students.

My Project

Although I have spent hundreds or maybe thousands on my classroom library, students are always needing new books to excite them about reading. I am asking for all picture books, as our classroom already has a large amount of chapter books.

One of my favorite quotes is "Reading takes us places when we have to stay where we are." I have researched books that teach students virtuous lessons, teach them a science topic, or have come highly recommend with a Caldecott Award.

I want my students to "go places" in a book.

Please help my third graders have new reasons to be excited to read. These bright and exciting picture books can do just that!
