Literacy and Me

Usually I don’t set goals, but for the year coming up, I am setting a few:

2021 is bound to see me reading even more than 2020.

Continue last year’s goals of reading more non-fiction and poetry.

Work on TBR shelves.

Finish my “Celebration of Color” Challenge. I have only one book to go.

Continue to read everything Susan Vreeland has written.

Read all of Madeline L’Engles books.

Dedicate the month of March to reading about things set in New York City. (My trip arranged for last March was cancelled due to Covid, so I choose to take the trip through reading.)

Read some more Books about Books, some set in libraries or about librarians, or things “bookish.”

Continue The Classics Club

I will probably add some things as I finish some up. It looks to be an interesting year of reading.

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."

  1. I, too, rarely set yearly goals, but, like you, this year I did.
    March in New York City? It sounds like it will be a fun visit there. Sometimes books can be a better way to travel than actually going to a place. (Hey, maybe this is a complete lie, but I’m telling myself this right now anyway.)
