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."

  1. Wow, what a great week Rae. I can’t wait to read your review for When We Were Young and Brave. I loved Dash and Lily, I want to read the books now. What a beautiful quilt, such a lovely gift. I’m with you, I’m staying home as well. I delivered some cookie tins today, knocked on the door and left on the porch and texted to make sure they got them. Have a wonderful Christmas Week, my friend. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ
