Megan, I'm so happy to have found you. Before I wrote kids books, I taught fifth grade for several years. Then I was a librarian and eventually started an arts-based school.

It's been a great life in education, but there's something about that fifth grade age that can't be beat. They can't decide it they're 3 or 30, and zip between those numbers from moment to moment. Ah, the writing they did, though -- at least the readers. As Jim Trelease says, "Reading is input, writing is output." I'm amazed at your energy to do all this in the blogging world and still be such a great teacher. We need more teachers like you who understand the need for good literature and student choice. Thanks for all you do for kids.
