My Students

Pioneer Middle School Library is home to over 675 middle school readers. The school is located in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley, home to three colleges/universities and a state prison. We have a varied demographic and our students have a higher percentage of students who score lower than average on state reading tests.

The library is the heart of the school.

Students use the library to not only check out books, but to do homework, use computers, socialize before/after school and during lunch, and of course to read. Teachers use the library for classes and I teach library classes and ebooks/digital content training. Most after-school clubs and programs are held in the library causing the library to be in use 10-12 hours a day.

My Project

The school library opened a STEAM Zone (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) this year with a few kits available for students to use during free time. Teachers love to use this area as a reward based opportunity for students who have completed their work. Students enjoy this area before school and during lunch. This has been such a big hit that we need to add a LEGO Land area to expand our STEAM Kits.

Students will create construction projects, physics experiments and entire worlds from their imagination with a variety of LEGO Kits.

LEGO Land will be accessible for all middle school students from life skills classes using the Education Starter Set to create a simple community to honors students using the Chain Reactions Kit to study physics and the Creator Explorer Robot to learn more about robotics. Students will have an exciting experience with this hands-on learning area.
