I am really thinking of applying for this as I am compiling my graduate choices to obtain my MLS in hopes of working with elementary age children. I hope that by introducing books, mostly picture books and easy readers, to them early that we find them turning to books as resources for learning more about socioeconomic behavior and improving our world.

I am applying because I already started my master in Bilingual Education focus in Special Education at SMU and I need financial aid to finish the second year. My goal is to help students in my community with special needs.
