Hello world!  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new blog.  I’m still working on building up the content, but this blog has come a long way from where it was when I started a few weeks ago. Honestly, my husband has been encouraging me to do this for years.  When we originally discussed creating a blog, we thought it would revolve around my knowledge as a teacher-librarian.  While there will certainly be elements of my professional training and experience woven into my writing, my main goal is to impart my personal experience, (accomplishments and failures), from teaching my own child.

I’m currently focusing on a series of posts about teaching children to read.  Think of these posts as a crash course in reading methodology to help you get started.  Upon it’s original inception, I wanted my blog to provide book reviews that would be of use to both parents and educators.  I’ll be publishing my first book review this Friday (3/10/17).  These reviews will include both my professional and personal (mom) opinions as well as my son’s impressions.

Thanks again for stopping by!



I’m a stay-at-home educator who loves to go on adventures with my preschool aged son.  Follow us as we explore our new home of Washington D.C. and learn through engaging (somewhat messy) hands-on activities.  There is plenty to learn about here!


Hi, I’m Michelle!
