My Students

I teach in an urban school district in the city of Harrisburg. My students have all experienced trauma in their life or the lives of their family and friends, but despite all of that they come to school eager and full of energy with a curiosity that is infectious. That being said, they struggle academically, emotionally, and socially. They rarely feel safe no matter how hard I try to convince them otherwise. Their experiences are some that some of us cannot even imagine, and this plays an enormous role in their academics. Losing themselves in a good book if only for a short period can make all the difference for my students.

My Project

Working in an urban district does not allow for a "classroom budget." I have heard of such things, but unfortunately have never experienced this personally. My current library is very outdated with books that are missing pages. It can be very disappointing to get near the end and find that the last few pages are missing and you do not know how the book ends. I would like to be able to offer my students award winning books and the newest series, so that they too can enjoy reading. Having new books will increase my students fluency as well increase a love of reading with new exciting material!
