Reading Takes You Places That You've Never Imagined.

My Students

I work in a rural School District, where students need more access to a variety of books that will expand their background knowledge and understanding of the ways of the world. They are rarely exposed to diversity and books are a valuable resource that will give them experiences in other cultures, ideas, and values.

My students want more opportunities and always rise to a challenge, so I want to be able to give them all that I can so they can succeed.

My Project

My students come from a rural area where funding is low and apathy is high. I have been pushing a choice reading initiative that has given my student more opportunity to read for pleasure than some of them have ever experienced before. They have found that they enjoy it more than they ever thought possible, and I need a larger variety of books to offer them in order to keep this new found love going strong. Reading activates creativity and curiosity, which is sorely lacking in many aspects of education and yet these exact attributes are essential for future prosperity.
