But I Smile Anyway...

“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.” – Connor Franta

What a beautiful quote Spidey found to ponder upon today!

It’s amazing what a simple smile can do.

A random smile from even a stranger can light up a dark moment for you.

To be greeted with a smile makes for a more positive start to each day.

I smile.

A LOT.

It gets commented on a lot too.

I am known for my positivity wherever I go.

When I was at university, I was described as ” That smiley, curly haired girl from Birmingham.”

One of my previous employers said to me that it was a pleasure to have me around as he could guarantee a smile whenever he saw me.

I’m not talking about sneers or sarcastic smiles, or cheesy grins, just genuine smiles.

And I smile pretty much all the time…

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
