My Students

Typical high school students. Wanting to provide more reading options for them. They read a lot and a variety, I am hoping to provide them a large variety. While we are lucky to still have a library, funding continues to regularly get cut. The kids need variety in order to pursue their interests. This project will help provide them with a greater variety of the regions we study. Please help my students be learners and readers for their whole lives!

My Project

Providing more reading options for students helps create readers. If they find material that is interesting to them, they will pick it up and read it! Thus....filling my classroom library and the school library with a wide variety of reading topics will help us reach out goal!

While we are lucky to still have a library, annual funding continues to regularly get cut.
