As I work with young readers and writers in my own classroom, I continue to search for ways to engage students with literature and the writing process: How can I help students become more confident and independent readers? How can I help students communicate effectively? How can I help students recognize the inherent value and enjoyment of reading and writing well? Because I know that other teachers ask themselves these same questions, I am passionate about my work at Fresno Pacific. The opportunity to engage with other teaching professionals is inspiring and rewarding; I hope that a collaborative sharing of ideas and strategies will enrich our teaching of reading and writing even further.
