My Students

The MCR3 school district is located in a rural, central Missouri farming community. The district serves approximately 260 students K-12. I see elementary and middle school students each week on a fixed schedule; each class period is 50 minutes. Students may also visit the library during open library times. High school students visit the high school library on an open schedule. I also collaborate with high school teachers on a regular basis. When I am occupied with duties in either library, students are served by my certified paraprofessional.

As a school librarian in a small, rural school district, I'm constantly looking for ways to expand my students' world view.

Any additional resources help to achieve this goal. Resources may be used as activities in the library or shared with teachers through the classroom or collaboration with myself.

My Project

The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne and Junie B. Jones books by Barbara Park are both favorites of my elementary students and some of the most frequently circulated books in our library. Many of these copies were on the library shelves when I began as librarian for the district in 2007, all of them in paperback.

Both series are the books my students gravitate towards, as they are transitioning to chapter books.

It is becoming more and more frequent that students bring me the books to repair with either pages falling out or ripped covers. Books out for repair are books that are not in students' hands. These new, library bound copies will keep my students reading their favorite titles.
