The Mustang Library: A Warm, Welcoming Space

Help me give my students the library they deserve with mobile book organizers and couches! We want children to love to read, and I want to give them a welcoming space to do so.

My Students

I am in my seventh year of teaching as the lead sixth grade teacher. We began year three of our turnaround initiative this past fall. Our students and families in this southwest Denver community have been under-served for more than 20 years as our school has been ranked in the bottom 1% of middle schools in Colorado for over two decades.

Only nine percent of my incoming sixth graders were proficient or advanced based on CMAS/PARCC.

I am a teacher who entered my sixth grade English Language Arts classroom every morning knowing that many of my students were reading well below grade level. Of the 27 students in my first period ELA class, 19 of these scholars were reading at or below a third grade level. Five of my sixth grade students could not read.

I am fully committed to these kiddos, their families, and this community, and we will successfully turn this school around to honor each scholar's true potential and dreams. I love working with my students because I know they are capable of doing anything when given tools for success. I love them as individual humans, each in their own uniqueness.

My Project

Right now, our library has punctured bean bags, filthy old pillows, and unorganized books strewn about shelves. My readers are far below where they need to be. I work hard every day to instill a love for reading within these young scholars. However, when I send them to the library, they do not rejoice for it is a dirty, dingy, and disorganized space. The bookshelves are from a used warehouse and have begun to cave under the weight of the books. The seating is not fire safe and all bean bags are leaking white styrofoam - clearly we need a remodel! Students will long to go to the library and read when the new book storage shelves and furniture arrive! Thank you for making reading a experience that students love!
