NEW BLOG/NEW IDEAS

Check out https://literacyandme.wordpress.com  for thoughts and my passion for spreading literacy in my neighborhood and wherever I can. Today’s post is about wise words from a classic book on literacy by Australian professor and literary activist, Mem Fox. It is written for teachers, parents, and anyone who shares a love of books and all things bookish.

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 post. 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 twenty years as a junior high teacher—total 50 years .Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog. As of December, 2019, I have ended my career at UHCL. I am still teaching in my Home town of Alvin, TX, located on the Texas Gulf Coast at two different locations. I’m just not being paid for it!
