"A Reader Lives a Thousand Lives" George R.R. Martin

HUGE news! A few weeks ago, I held my breath, made a wish, and put it out into the universe. And, guess what?! The universe answered! It sent me wonderful humans that understand that children need to read and explore in order to grow and mature. By the way of personal library donations, an actual library donating 3 jam packed boxes of books and almost 40 purchased off of my Wish List! Can you believe it?! Yeah, neither could I!!

There are more than what’s been photographed, but those bad boys are all labeled and ready to go to their new home tomorrow!! I’m making a shelf dedicated especially to all of the generous donations! The books will don book plates listing the donors’ names.

I’m a firm believer in what you put into the world, you will receive. I’ve been at this teaching gig going on 19 years now… And, I’ve put a lot of effort, blood, sweat, and tears (so, SO many tears) and I’ve been treated to some really wonderful paybacks- my children, former students who stay in touch and tag me in Facebook (say what you will, but it’s nice to know they never forgot me… I’ve got a Winnie the Pooh complex, sometimes). When I’ve asked for things for my students, and once a huge ask for my son, I’ve been met with nothing short of  pure, unadulterated generosity. That is no joke. I LOVE to exaggerate and basically live in a hyperbolic state, but this is legit.

So, what else is there to say other than…  THANK YOU!!!!
