DEWEY’s 24 HR READATHON: 9:00 p.m. Check In


Freesia’s getting tired. It’s been a looooong day.
Saturday Morning for Kids on Saturday night

Swing It Sunny by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm, a graphic novel. I will not review this thanks to spending time at Dewey’s, but it deals with Sunny’s summer before middle school begins and how she misses her brother, Dale, who has been sent to Military School after troubles with drugs and unsavory friends. Can Sunny remain sunny-side up?

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."
