CHALLENGE UPDATE

Literacy and Me

I have taken on several reading challenges for the year 2022, not the least of which was the
Mt. TBR challenge.

In this challenge, I agreed to read 24 books from my TBR shelves.

I chose this challenge to report on today because it is the one I am doing the worst on. Hopefully calling attention to these books on my TBR shelves waiting to be read will spur me into knocking out some of them.

WHAT I HAVE READ SO FAR:

BECAUSE I HAVE READ ONLY 7 BOOKS OF THE 24 I HOPE TO ATTEMPT, THIS IS THE CHALLENGE I’M DOING THE WORST ON.

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."
