My career in teaching and librarianship is extensive -- I have 16 years experience as a teacher and another 16 as a school library media specialist. Recently, I returned to library work after four years as a classroom computer skills teacher. As I began to order books and recommend books to my students, I quickly realized that I was "out of the loop" when it came to current fiction books. So - I began reading again.
I would like to offer a special thanks to fellow teacher Wendy Langseth, who recommended Steven Layne's book Igniting a Passion for Reading. Layne's book reminded me of the importance of reading, and the importance of being a good reading role model for my students.
Make sure to read the ABOUT page to learn about my approach to this blog, and the books that I read.
Have a great day, and happy reading!
