SUNDAY SUMMARY

AFTER THE RECENT SNOWMAGGEDON, the temps getting up to 80 degrees was a blessing!

This week was sunny, often cloudy and humid, but…WHO CARES! No more snow; no more 14 degrees with no heat. The plumbing and heat & air-conditioning trucks travel throughout the subdivision, and soaked carpeting and insulation are left out on yards to be picked up. Things are slowly returning to normal. I am caught up with catching up my online Advanced Writing class, and have been able to do some reading.

An attempt to read more non-fiction

An attempt to read more poetry

A re-read for a “project”
Another re-read, same “project”

An eBook

My daily “read”

I am savoring this one and reading slowly.

Definitely something from The Classics!

That’s me all right!

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."
