This past week was Banned Books week. For those of you who might not be aware, Banned Books week celebrates openmindedness. As a teacher, I loved Banned Books week. I started the year with a whole unit on Banned Books. The great thing about it was that I taught kids who were amazed that books […]

Now that the kids are back in school, I’m doing my best to catch up and get back into my regular routine of blogging. Not an easy task. I spent way to much time attempting to read the backlog of blogs and finally gave up. I really, really hope I didn’t miss anything vital. I […]
