My Students

I have wonderful, hard working readers who desperately need immersion in books. Most of my high school aged children work

And help support their families and can not afford books!

Books can take them places they’ve never been and also help them learn about life. They can realize that there are others with the same challenges that they have! They will be able to understand that reading is fun! These kids deserve good books to read in their classroom. They will feel so special

My Project

These students will be much more engaged in lit circles with these popular titles and the choice they will be given! With books that they choose, their interest will be higher and they will learn more. They can read alongside students with the same interests and have fun and take charge of their learning. They can help each other and get lost in these books. Kids love to have a choice in what they read and they also love having access to the latest young adult novels, as well as the classics. They will be reading for the entire class period in Friday’s and need books that peak their interests!
