Ms. Irving from Greensboro NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading for All, Not Some

My students need books that match the diversity of our school population. Our library is outdated and my English teachers need these books to use for projects and inspire our students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Made up of over 50 nationalities, the community capitalizes on this diversity as it creates global learners. Our students are special because they often work with our community to gain funding for better facilities, educational materials and beautifying the building and grounds. Many of them also in the last two years have participated in service learning projects to provide student made bedrolls for the homeless and help dress a poor village in Africa. The students themselves need funding but they are quick to help those in the community in need. My students are special and have inspired me to do whatever I can to insure their success through funding and contributing more of my own time and resources to them.

My Project

Every year an English teacher(s) and I do a speed date with books project, and we need updated, diverse titles such as I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican American Daughter, Reservation Blues, Clear Day, Girl in Reverse, and other titles in my purchase list. Titles in the list such as Turtles all the Way Down are requested frequently by our students. They enjoy John Green's literature and want more! These titles match our demographics and are updated to improve a library collection average year age of books 1989. That is 29 years ago! These books will make a difference to students.
