I am a substitute teacher in Arizona and love to find new Young Adult and Middle Grade books to suggest to the students. I am currently working towards a Master's program at ASU in Secondary Education so I can teach English Language Arts to Junior High students.
Reason for blogging
I've found that what I read has a real effect on me so I've dedicated my blog to not only reviewing the books I read, but rating them based on content, to prevent younger readers from stumbling onto a book that is more mature than they are at the moment. I find it very satisfying to share my take on the book with others, and perhaps help them be inspired to read it as well. I've always loved to read and share my thoughts, and blogging helps me do that.
