  • It is my goal to have an extensive library of books available for students.  To help keep my library stocked with current books, I am always looking for donations.  If you have books at home that your child has finished reading, I would welcome adding them to the library.

    I've also included a link to my Classroom Library wishlist on Amazon.  Any donations are greatly appreciated.
