My students need books about powerful women, African-Americans, and the disability experience to help them grow and develop as citizens of the world.
My students have varied experiences and home lives. Some of them have wonderful, exciting childhoods. Others have dealt with life experiences that I could never even imagine. However, I try to make one thing abundantly clear. When students walk into my classroom, they can leave the weight of their home lives behind and spend the day being cared for, supported, and encouraged.
My classroom is a haven for all students.
I am not just here to teach core subjects. My goal is to make these kids into better people and citizens of the world. They challenge themselves every day to grow, learn new things, and see people and ideas in a different light. I am positive that I have students who will go on to change the world- even if they don't know it yet.
My students have a passion for reading. When considering to become a teacher when I was in elementary school, I decided to start saving all of my books for my future students. So, when I started teaching in August 2017, I had almost 300 books set aside for my students to enjoy. However, my collection is lacking in what I perceive to be some of the most important literature.
My students are in desperate need of diverse books.
I am trying to help shape citizens of the world, and I want them to be exposed to a variety of ideas, people, and lifestyles. My goal for this project is to get my students nonfiction books about important women and African-Americans in history, as well as books that touch on the experience of living with disabilities. It is my hope that my students can read these and feel more empowered as future world-changers and be more empathetic towards their peers.
