I am currently a Reading Specialist in West Hartford, CT. Teaching is a second career for me but I always knew it was my "calling."
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
Books for all reading levels would line shelves in my classroom. Desks would be replaced by comfortable, living room-like seating. Lessons would be conducted at tables with a small white board. The schedule would allow for time to conference with students individually and frequently. Students would grow into passionate readers.
