Every June, I have the luxury to recharge my life: personal life, my professional life, and reading life. I look forward to creating memories with my husband and three sons. I get to take time for myself doing the things I love. I reflect on how well I supported teachers and students this school year and how I can do better in September.
I modeled this summer’s reading stack after watching Kwame Alexander’s talk about Spine Poems. Sharing my reading plans with students and teachers allows them to see me as a reader and learner, but it also gives me the opportunity to sneak in one more teaching moment.
I wish you all a summer of reading and recharging! Thank you for all you do!
