I’m reading a book right now called, “Igniting a Passion for Reading.”  I’d love to work in the same school as the man who penned this amazing guide for teachers. 

He inspired me to teach this last nine weeks of reading in a whole new way, allowing my students to devour books as gifts not simply as another way to answer questions on a test.

I long for all students to have a quiet place where they can become part of the book they are reading-travel to different lands, become people they may never have the chance to be.

I want this for my own children.

I hope you will find a few minutes today to curl up with a good book.. 

Here’s my transformed classroom.    My happiest moments at school are when I catch a glimpse of a student smiling as they read a book. 🙂

Happy Reading,
