Love to Read

I have always loved to read...as a child, the best escape was a good book.  Over the years I have often heard adults who say they hate to read.  I could never understand how anyone could hate reading.  I love the bond that forms with the characters in a good book.  Whenever I am at the end of a book, I catch myself really slowing down...I hate the thought of ending the connection I've made with the characters.

I teach 4th grade, and I can tell you that one of the most rewarding aspects of my job is when a kid who hated reading at the beginning of the year finds "that perfect book" that reels them in.  I love learning about my students, and helping them find the book that turns their thinking around.
