My Project

My students are dynamic middle schoolers who come to school excited to learn. They are highly motivated and self-directed, kind and hard-working. As our school’s teacher librarian, I have the unique opportunity to teach and spend time with students across all disciplines. My students are readers, historians, scientists, athletes, mathematicians, artists, writers, among so much more.

We want to help our students show their creativity and ideas by expanding our makerspace to include materials to make buttons and bookmarkers.

Help them to let their personalities shine bu encouraging creativity! We would also use the button-making station for different events in the library throughout the year and so much more!

Ms. Garrahan
Grades 6-8
