My Students

Nothing breaks my heart more than hearing “I hate to read!” I would love to set up a classroom library that allows my students to have a wide variety of books. I would love to have classics as well as modern options so I can really encourage my students to read and love it. I feel that there is a book soulmate out there for everyone. I’m a second-year teacher and am getting my masters, so I don’t have a lot left over after tuition to buy books for my students.

My Project

Access to books has been shown to increase empathy and test scores in students. I would love to provide access to my classroom! I love reading and want to find books, both classic and modern, that my students can enjoy. I have also included some lower-level readers for some books that I’ll be using in my classroom for ESL students. I would love to build this resource over time and will continue to add as much as I can. I intend to add some more books from Amazon and ask students which books they would like to see available. However, I’m only a second-year teacher and am starting from scratch. Any help is greatly appreciated!
