My Students

My students are true Minnesotans: kind and considerate people. I have worked at several different schools, but our high school is the best. I enjoy my wonderful and witty students every day. They are why I teach.

My Project

We have a small school with limited funds and resources. Many of the books my students read are from my personal collection. Our library is small, as is our school. I would like to offer more book variety for students. I tell my students that readers make great leaders. I want to help them improve their reading by obtaining more high-interest novels and a larger selection. I tell students that they don't hate reading; they just haven't found the right book yet. Please help us buy additional books for our classroom library!
