I'm a 7th grade English Language Arts teacher at the Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (also known as MELS), a public school that serves grades 6-12 in Queens, New York. Our school is an incredible place because we believe in creating unique experiences for our students to learn about themselves, their community, and their world. The courses of study in my classroom reflect the state of our society today, and I design my curriculum to enable my students to be critical and reflective of the world around them.

What will the funds be used for

I serve an incredible population of students in one of the most diverse public schools in the country. Your donation will directly impact my English classroom by helping me purchase sets of new young adult books for my classroom library that deal with current topics and issues facing my students today. I want to be able to make reading recommendations and provide books for my students based on their reading level. In addition, my students should be able to see themselves and their culture reflected in the books they read at school. Your help will enable me to build a library where that can happen for all my students.
