Literacy and Me

I am joining Jay at This Is My Truth Now in an August Children’s Books Marathon. During the month of August participants will read and review “assigned” children’s books (which were voted on and selected by bloggers and followers of his website) on their own blogs.  Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry, you can participate here by posting your reviews on this site.  Just write your review in the Leave a Comment box at the end of each post.  Here is a list of the books to be reviewed and the dates by which you are to post/share your review.  You can read all the books or a few, or just one of them. Your reviews will be read and commented on by readers of Literacy Lessons.

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I have just completed 30 years of teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This is after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District, adding up to a total of teaching 50 years in all. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
