I Am a Reader

I have always been a reader but I was never a proud reader in my classroom until a year ago.  I realized then that to inspire deep passion in my readers I had to share my own.  I realized then that to inspire my students to keep reaching for books I had to show my own hunger for more.  Now I am reader because I know it matters.  I am reader because it teaches me more.

I am a reader because I can hand books to students knowing that they will love them.

I am a reader because I need to get lost in books as much as my students do.

I am a reader because I want to live a thousand lives and travel to a million places.

I am a reader because my life would be gray without all of my books.

I am a reader because I cannot pretend that reading is important, I have to live it.

I am a reader because it allows me to connect with any child I meet.

I am a reader because of the memories it creates.

I am a reader because of the moments I share with others.

I am a reader because my students need me to be.

I am a reader because my soul requires it.

Are you a reader?  Why?
