My Students

I am a new Library Teacher. I see students in grades K-5. We have a very busy library that is open before and after school. The library is also open on Saturdays to families. Our library is the hub in the school. My school is a Title I school where everyone receives free lunch. Many of our families are new to the country, experiencing homelessness or some other financial hardships. A book can take a child places they never dreamed of going. My parents and students definately relate to this statement. At our Parent Child Book Club, we recently read Dreamers. This story is about an immigrant family that experiences the joys of a library.

The library to be the hub of the school where children, parents, teachers go to get books or gather information.

I remember as a child how I loved to go to the library and relax with a book. I would sit on the floor and just get lost in my own world. The students in my library are very lucky to have such a lovely place. A book can take you to faraway places without ever leaving your house.

My Project

I am a new Library Teacher at my school. Currently the students come to the library and are sitting on torn uncomfortable cushions. The library has had these cushions for 15 years! Imagine what they look like now. Everyday the library is used by at least 5 classes. Each class sits on these seats. They are torn and being held together by duct tape. The students are now ripping the foam that already is torn. Some of the students are putting the foam in their mouths. The students love going to the library and listening to stories. I want the library to be an inviting cozy place. These seats would be a start to that change.
