Mrs. Wilson from Olalla WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I believe it is my duty to provide a learning environment that gets my students excited about reading and technology.

Our classrooms are full of students from a variety of backgrounds, but we all come together as one big family at school.

My students live in a small rural community of about five thousand people. Approximately 41.5 percent of students at our school are living at, or below, the poverty level. Most of their families consist of blue-collar workers living paycheck to paycheck.

My Project

The current cookbook collection in the Olalla library is from the 1980s. Students often ask for books to teach them how to prepare food, but old books with outdated ideas are simply not appealing.

This selection of cookbooks will stock the library with quality, up-to-date cooking and baking recipes for budding chefs and bakers.

This project would re-stock the cookbook shelf with over 20 books to teach kids the basics of cooking and baking. There is a little something for everyone: international dishes, cupcakes, snacks, vegetarian, holiday treats and recipes inspired by popular culture icons like Star Wars, Harry Potter.
