Welcome to the Bulldog & Bobcats Readers Blog! Here you can find info about new books, reviews, lesson ideas, events, visiting authors- in other words – important and fun information about reading. I especially love receiving comments from our blogging visitors! If you read something, please leave a comment!
This is my personal and professional reading blog. The information shared does not reflect the opinions or endorsement of my current or past employers. My goal is to provide a place for readers and librarians to find information they might need in regards to reading, learning and technology.
Outside of my family, including my dogs, my greatest passion is connecting kids with books. Kids who think they don’t like to read just haven’t found the right material for them. I say material because sometimes kids think they are only readers if they read books. Not so. There is nothing in the definition of reading that says you have to only read books to be a reader. Comics, newspapers, magazines, scripts, as well as books all count as reading. Of course, I always hope that students will find a book that speaks to them and enter the life-long joy of reading that is so important in my life.
My other passion is connecting learning with technology. I view technology as a tool students can use to enhance their learning. We don’t do “tech lessons” in class, but rather we do project based learning that incorporates elements of technology.
Connecting with visitors from around the world and learning from each other is what gives meaning and authenticity to my work. We are not islands, but connected partners crossing the bridges from one place to another. Welcome! Let’s learn together!
