I have a very diverse group of students who have faced many challenges in their short lives. In our area, financial hardship is real.
I am so lucky to teach in a school where everyone works to meet the diverse needs of all of our students.
Our little school is special, but because we are so rural our declining enrollment is having a negative impact on our budget. There isn't enough funding to provide the extras that make a classroom both functional and a little extra special. I do what I can personally but it is never enough.
I currently am trying to put together a nice library of quality books for my students to read, but there isn't adequate storage in my classroom that provides easy access. Shelf space is limited, thus our books are not displayed in a manner that my students can easily find that special book that they are looking for!
I wish to provide a pleasing and inviting library for my students and this library cart will be an excellent addition.
This cart will allow me extra room to sort my books by genre and reading level. Our shelves aren't big enough to do that and it is difficult for my students to browse through what I have for them I like the idea of having a cart because it is mobile! I can easily move it to other parts of my room as needed.
