Hunting for Treasure

"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island."–Walt Disney

This is me… October 1, 2009

I’m a middle school teacher who loves to read and teach reading.  I’m always on the hunt, looking for both great books and strategies that will improve my teaching of Language Arts.  I started this blog to share some of the treasures I’ve found over my fourteen years of teaching,  and to help other teachers along the way!

Currently, I teach 6th grade Language Arts in  Boise, Idaho. Before that, I taught 1st and 3rd grades at a public arts magnet school in Chattanooga, TN.  I’ve also had the honor of collaborating with teachers throughout the East Coast as a consultant with the National Paideia Center at the University of North Carolina.  I am passionate about public education and making a difference in kids’ lives.  I’m always focused on what I can do to get kids into books and to love reading as much as I do.
When I’m not teaching or reading, I am gardening, hiking, testing new recipes, going to the movies, enjoying a long afternoon nap, or spending time with my husband.  Life is good!
