Here are some plans I have for this blog:

  1. A guest post from a first grader in a bi-lingual class (hopefully with a translation and comment about the author from her teacher.)
  2. To discontinue The Sunday (Evening) Post. Sunday is either a day of rest or the busiest day of my week; therefore it is not a good day post on. Also, there is no way I can keep up with what I have read, am reading, and hope to read.  I’m abandoning my life as a confirmed “planner,” and assuming a more spontaneous outlook to life! LOL
  3. Either a Thursday Thoughts or a Monday Musings post once each week.
  4. Some “fun” posts.
  5. A bit of poetry, not my own, but others’.
  6. If you have suggestions, let me know!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus 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."
