I can’t really explain my fascination with Middle School Literature. I mean when you tell people you teach Middle School their response is normally, “You must be crazy.” Well, that is probably true, but what I’ve learned as a Middle School teacher is that you have to really love what you teach. Some of the most amazing teachers have two things in common, they are passionate about what they teach and they are passionate about their students.
For me, I love the idea of helping kids learn to enjoy reading. And for those that already do, helping them push their boundaries and explore new genres or dive deeper into the books they already love.
Middle School is such a crucial time in kids’ lives and helping them have a great foundation for reading is equally as important.
