My Students

My students are the funniest humans I have ever met. Every single one of them is full of life, with a unique and LARGE personality. I never know what is going to happen or be said each day, but these fourth graders never back down from a challenge.

My students have an energy and passion for learning that is unmatched.

They deserve to have a classroom library that will continue to fuel this motivation for learning. I am the luckiest teacher in the world to have these students my first year.

My Project

My students are in need of engaging and relevant reading materials. As a first year teacher, I don't have a large classroom library. What I do have are hand-me-downs from retired teachers, which are still great books but newer material would help me reach even my most reluctant readers. This project consists of books that include racially diverse characters, female leaders, historical fiction, nonfiction narratives, books about video games, characters with disabilities, and so on.

These books vary greatly, as do my students.

If I can even help one student feel more accepted in the classroom or gain excitement about reading, because they related to a character or situation in one of these books, then this whole project would be very much worth it.
