My Students

The media center is a central hub for learning in our school. Students love to read and discover new interests, and teachers love to encourage experimenting and challenging their students. The media center not only provides books and digital content for students to find information to support their interests and queries, but also the resources to explore and test materials and projects that encourage creativity and discovery.

Our school hosts a diverse group of students from every ethnic and socioeconomic demographic.

It's not easy for all students and their families to provide materials for hands-on learning. Supporting 40 plus classes that teach over 800 students can be a difficult task.

My Project

Battle of the Books is a competition for those that love to read. However, providing enough books for a team of dedicated readers can be tough on schools.

Not every student is physical athlete and Battle of the Books provides the environment and opportunity to show the strength of their brain muscle.

As a media coordinator, I am able to take the fundamental skill of reading and bring the liveliness of competition to students that love to read. Not only does this competition affect the students that read the books, but inspire other students to try reading new genres and recognizing that reading can really be fun.
