Mrs. Frese from Saint Edward NE is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

What Students Want, They Will Get!

My students need 20 weird school books, graphic novels, and sports books to be added to our classroom library.

My Students

Student opinions on books mean the world to me, so it should you as well!

I have 10 energetic students; as I'm typing this during their study time they are making up hand shakes!

Kids will be kids! We live in a rural area in Nebraska. Our town population has almost 800 people. It is mainly a farming community, where all jobs are connected to the farming industry.

My Project

I am requesting new books for our classroom library. My students are always coming up to me asking me, "Can you get such and such books for our library?" It hurts me to tell them that I can't afford it, because some of the students in my class only have these books and the library's books, so I feel like it is my duty as a teacher that loves reading myself to get as many kinds of books in my students' hands as possible. My students are into books such as weird school books and graphic novels. I know many people would say graphic novels are not books, but I believe anything that my students read helps them in the long run!

If you help me succeed in completing this project you will help get books into my students' hands that would not be possible otherwise.

I love seeing my students get excited when I get new books into our library.
