My Students

My school is a public Montessori magnet school. Parents, who choose to apply to our program, want a Montessori education for their children but cannot afford a private option.

My students are active, engaged, curious, and excited about learning.

They are also very diverse. Our student population is diverse, approximately 70% African American, 10% white, a growing Hispanic population, and immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. Our students also come from a diverse socioeconomic background, with over 60% qualifying for free or reduced lunch.

With less than 300 students, our parent teacher association is small but active. The organization supports the teachers and students as it can by providing monetary support for classroom materials and hosting cultural events but its funds are limited. Our parents give greatly through their time, however, and many volunteer in the classroom, library, or other areas of the school.

My Project

Last spring our school was damaged by a tornado and 2/3's of our fiction book collection was lost due to water damage. In the portion of the collection that had to be discarded were some of my students' favorite books by some of their favorite authors. We are slowly beginning to rebuild our collection to make these stories available to my students again.

My students love to read books that make them laugh.

The books in this project are as funny and engaging as they are valuable for their accessibility and readability. Mo Willems is a favorite author and once these books are returned to the shelves they will be enthusiastically checked out.

Having books on the library shelves that get students excited about reading is important to build a love of the written word. We need to get books that students love back into their hands so they will be excited about reading and eager to read more.
