My Students

Our school serves a low income, high needs population. The school over the last several years has seen a decline in enrollment due to school choice/lottery policies. Despite this decline in enrollment, we continue to push for high achievement and innovative practices, and it is because of this that I am seeking to improve a classroom library for extensive choice reading. Our kind and hard-working kids will respond to the high interest engaging texts and through interacting with them and each other, we can potentially change their lives. A great book can inspire and change a person. It can draw a person in and open doors to new ideas. It can give a student a new way of looking at things. Our kids deserve nothing less than this.

My Project

Having relevant and engaging classroom libraries is integral to having successful choice reading. When students have choice, their engagement goes up. When students choose texts that are suspenseful or dramatic or heartfelt, they often continue reading, which leads to trying other books.

The books I have placed in my cart have been my most successful titles that have either gone missing or have been read so much that they need to be replaced.

I call books like this a gateway to reading, and unfortunately they go missing at times and I do my best to replace them. Thanks for helping!
