My Students

My students are from high poverty, tight knit community. Many of my students come from low-income households, many with only one parent and some with only one grandparent. Most of my students are bused to school and have no other reliable transportation much less funds to go to local stores to purchase school project supplies such as poster boards.

I want my students to know that their school library supports their learning with more than just books!

I have been fortunate in the past to have both a former teacher and a parent purchase and donate poster boards for our school, which I would then give to students when their teacher let me know that they needed one for a class project. Unfortunately the teacher is no longer able to help and the parent has moved on.

Giving students’ project supplies without embarrassment about their ability to get and pay for supplies has wonderful. Students have demonstrated their gratitude for helping them by putting a lot of time and effort into their projects and usually come in to show me the finished project as a way of thanks.

My Project

Teachers assign many class projects which allow students opportunities to demonstrate their creativity through artwork and printed pictures. Students use these class projects to display their understanding of lessons. In order to do this, we need materials!

My school library offers many free materials for students to use for their projects.

I provide markers, colored pencils, scissors, and glue for students to use. I recently had a seniors' group donate colored and copy paper for student to use for printing essays and pictures. The only thing I do not have to help my students is poster boards. Students love it and show pride with themselves whenever their projects are displayed in our hallways.
