My long-time friend and fellow Alvinite (Alvin, TX) Deb Nance was the one who encouraged me to blog in the first place. Her blog Readerbuzz is a constant delight to me and a way to keep updated on what this busy lady is up to. Right now, she is looking for fossils and sapphires in another county with her gemologist husband. She and Tamara of Thyme for Tea are featuring Paris in July again this year. If you are enchanted by the idea of Paris, France (We do have a Paris, Texas, LOL), join her blog and enjoy many pictures and posts from her April trip to Paris as well as reviews of books about Paris and Paris recipes.

HOP ON OVER TO HER BLOG and take a sneak peek, then tune in for real on July 1st. I sure plan to!

Thanks Evin for the sign off!

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."
