My Students

I am excited to have just joined an amazing faculty at an urban middle school.

My amazing students love to read!

We have a book club where they meet Mondays after school to discuss the week's reading and connect with others of like mind. They come up with questions to ask each other about what they've read and have become very good friends so far this year.

Our middle school sits in the inner-city area of Los Angeles, California. 100% of our scholars receive free breakfast, lunch, and dinner due to economic conditions at home. They are mostly Hispanic and African-American scholars who live in the South Central area of Los Angeles.

My Project

A book club is a special thing in and of itself. A middle school book club is more precious in that it teaches students in grades 6-8 how to run a book club, be in a book club, and why they are important. In order to have a book club, we need books for them to read!

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student literacy, but you will also ultimately help to increase their social skills, and thus their academic achievement.

Additionally, each student gets to keep their copy of the book, so that the book remains in the community, to be kept on bookshelves and lent out to friends and family.
