I’ve been “selling” books to students for 23 years as a public school teacher. I’m delighted to share my book and literacy expertise in a different venue. I believe books and reading have the power to change your life. Books call you to think and to take action. I invite you to grow with us – one book at a time.  Recent favorite books:  The Celebrants by Steven Rowley and The Collected Regrets of Clover by Mikki Brammer.

Do you know what it is like to be married to a Reading Specialist? We have required time-outs for reading and thinking just about every day! I love a good psychological thriller and am especially drawn to Sherlock Holmes read alikes.  Favorite books:  The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck and Sharp Objects by Gillian Glynn.

My mom has put books in my hands since day one. There is no escaping her reading encouragement. Ever! Most recently, I’ve been getting into more nonfiction as I question the world and its established systems.  Favorite books:  Everyday by David Levithan, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, and Dracula by Bram Stoker.

Tik Tok doesn’t count as reading? Just kidding! When technology gets ripped out of my hands, I enjoy reading dystopian novels and a good dog story.  Recent favorite books:  Full Out by Monica Aldama and Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds.
