My Students

I am a library media specialist for students in our school who are in the 7-12 grades. My students consist of all kinds of readers--some are voracious readers, some are moderate readers, and some are very reluctant readers! My job is to have books for all of them! My goal is to know every student and to also know what type of books are best suited for each of the students.

I know that a student is hooked when he/she tells me that reading the book was like a movie playing in his/her head!

I can't tell you what a rush it is to get a reluctant reader excited about reading! My wish is for every student to enjoy reading!

My Project

Books tell us stories. They also open our eyes to places, people, and things unfamiliar to us. More importantly, books help us to become more empathetic to others and their situation which might be totally different from anything we have encountered. Putting books in the hands of students will change them.

If there is anything that we need now as a society, it is the ability and compassion to see things from another's point of view.

I truly believe that the more we read, the more we understand our fellow man.
