From Teacher Elizabeth Nimons…….
“I work in a low-income community with over 50% of our students receiving free/reduced lunch. Our school has been identified as a “failing” school, but we believe that everyone can achieve and be successful, I am teaching reading to children who are significantly below grade level. I have started a Community Reading Project in which community members and high school students come into the school and read with children once a week for 20 minutes. I don’t have enough books for every student and I don’t have the funds to buy them. This will be my 2nd year having community members reading in the school and I would like to get more books and more volunteers. The program was successful, but we did lack resources. My reading project targets students in grades 4-6 and the community readers sit with small groups and read with them, to them and then they discuss the books and complete short reading activities if time allows. I currently have a very small library to pick from and students can rely on the Media center but I would like to have a separate section for my program that I can make available to the community readers.”
