What I’m Reading
As a lifelong learner and English teacher, I have always cherished books and stories. I know that times are changing and that people are reading in different ways today; in reading and reviewing books that I have loved and that have impacted me, I hope to ignite conversation and encourage literacy in others. Check out my book review site, bookclique, for wonderful reviews by uniquely talented teachers, students, and writers I have been fortunate to know in my career in education.
Every day, kids go off to school and come back hours later having learned and experienced new things. Whether they do that from their own homes via online courses or by traveling some distance to a classroom in a public, private, charter or other type of learning environment, students are constantly expanding their understanding of their world. As an educator, I have wanted to learn along with them and to demonstrate, through new technologies and methods of communication, the fact that learning has no bounds and never ends. I began writing What I Learned Today in School in 2014 to celebrate education, explore educational trends, and highlight parenting challenges in the digital age. My mission is simple: to encourage connections between and among learners of all ages in all spaces and to prove without a doubt that no matter where it happens, school is always in session.
