Teacher Megan Gomez
Hello! My name is Megan, I am the library technician at Dolores Huerta Elementary School. I am raising money to help bring diversity into our school library! All kids need stories that reflect their own experience, not just the experiences of others. Your contribution will bring books that reflect diversity into the hands of students excited to read! These books will act as mirrors that reflect their own lives and will give them a strong foundation on which to build and strengthen their identities. When students read books where they see characters like themselves, who are valued in the world, they feel a sense of belonging. Reading these types of stories can help them feel less alone in the world! Something EVERY kid needs and deserves. Building a diverse library will help benefit our students now, and for years to come. Thank you for your support! ¡Hola! Mi nombre es Megan, soy la técnica bibliotecaria de la Escuela Primaria Dolores Huerta. ¡Estoy recaudando dinero para ayudar a traer diversidad a la biblioteca de nuestra escuela! Todos los niños necesitan historias que reflejen su propia experiencia, no solo las experiencias de los demás. ¡Su contribución traerá libros que reflejan la diversidad a las manos de los estudiantes entusiasmados por leer! Estos libros actuarán como espejos que reflejarán sus propias vidas y les darán una base sólida sobre la cual construir y fortalecer sus identidades. Cuando los estudiantes leen libros en los que ven personajes como ellos, que son valorados en el mundo, sienten un sentido de pertenencia. ¡Leer este tipo de historias puede ayudarlos a sentirse menos solos en el mundo! Algo que TODOS los niños necesitan y se merecen. La construcción de una biblioteca diversa ayudará a beneficiar a nuestros estudiantes ahora y en los años venideros. ¡Gracias por tu apoyo!
