My career in education began in 1988. I was a second grade teacher for 18 years. My administration approached me about reopening our school library that hadn’t been used in years. I was apprehensive at first but soon realized that teaching children to enjoy what they were reading without the stress of questioning and testing was where I needed to be. I teach a lifelong skill that we cannot overlook as educators. The more students read for enjoyment the more they will read. The more they read the higher they will achieve.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can”
