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. You had a great reading week. Did you get much read during this awful week of weather we had here in Texas?

    I’m a Wrinkle in Time fan from way back. Way, way back. I remember getting my first copy in a Scholastic book order. Was I in sixth grade? And yet I’ve never read anything else by L’Engle.

    Your goals are coming along nicely. I bet you are having fun planning for a month of New York City in March.

    1. I did nothing because I could not focus on anything but being sooooooo cold.
      I have already read many books by L’Engle, including her autobiography, but I intend to re-read or at least skim them again.
      Tomorrow on the 28th, I do my first NY post–your mug and another from NYC.
