My Students

My students are a unique set of kids. They are from a diverse background, but many live in the same residential area. Our school is a Title I school in the heart of Atlanta. We work hard to ensure that we are giving our students our best by helping them to establish standards of hard work and character.

The students I teach often come to school with elaborate stories of poverty and violence, but they never falter or waiver in effort in spite of everything that they observe.

They have an internal desire to succeed, which keeps me motivated and enthused as an educator.

My desire to help them succeed helps me excel at my job.

My goal as the school media specialist/librarian is to provide the scholars we teach with as many resources to succeed inside and outside the classroom.

My Project

W are requesting books - Pete the Cat, Danny and the Dinosaur, Biscuit, Splat the Cat and many more. Students learn about the world by reading. Many of my students have discovered topics by having books read to them in class or by reading the few titles that their teachers have housed in their in-class libraries.

Although in-class reading is sufficient, students could experience so much more and increase their knowledge base if more books were accessible to them.

My students have a difficult time finding books that are appropriate for their reading level in the library.

Having early reader books of exciting titles will allow my pre-K, kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students to explore new concepts, practice their reading skills, and become better readers by engaging with new materials and books that they may not have read before.
