I am 14 weeks into teaching in Greenville, MS and I realize now more than ever how important it is to have a student-centered classroom. Going into the classroom, I had a library for my students, but the books I had were not books that they felt motivated and interested to read. Slowly, I have realized that building literacy and improving reading levels are the most important things I can work on with my students. I have researched books that I know they will read - and I have given a few of my students who have shared their dislike for reading a few novels on this list. These students have loved the books and have been begging to take the books home. Unfortunately, I cannot afford all the books I need on my own. I am asking for your help. Please consider donating enough to buy one book; one book bought is one more student that is engaged in reading.

Thank you for your help.
