Fall for Reading

Help me give my students a lifelong love for reading and for exploring worlds both familiar and seemingly strange.

My Students

My students are writers, travelers, comedians, philosophers, athletes, artists, social justice activists, musicians, poets, tinkerers, scientists, scholars, and future world-changers.

They are voracious readers and passionate writers who have a lot to say.

They're curious about the world they'll inherit, and I know it's one they will make better. I feel privileged to read, write, think, learn, and laugh with my students every day. They teach and inspire me, and make me so grateful I chose this profession and continue to choose it each day.

My Project

With this order, I'm requesting well-loved, student-recommended fiction (like The Red Queen), a selection of quality graphic novels, some engaging non-fiction (like The Boys Who Challenged Hitler), and a batch of high-quality sports-themed titles (like Gym Candy).

It can be difficult to put my hands on the right book at the right time for each student, but it's a task I take very seriously.

There's no doubt that one of the best parts of my job is pairing students with a just-right book and seeing their faces come alive. And even better than that is recommending a book to one student, who reads it and loves it, and then passes it on to a friend or two. Unbeatable!
