Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you'll forgive me for getting a little personal on this post. This seemed like the perfect time to take a moment to thank all of the people who have helped me out with this blog.

Thank you, Robbie, for being so supportive. And also hilarious, handsome, smart, and strong.

Thanks to my kids, for giving my life so much more meaning, and for being the main reason I'm passionate about education in the first place.

Thanks to my parents for teaching me and supporting me all my life, and in every way possible.

Thank you, guest posters past and future, for making this blog so much more than I ever could on my own. Helen Boswell, Heather Hawke, Tasha Seegmiller, Jacqueline Houtman (coming next week!), Laura Cotts, Natalie Clark, Jayne Moraski.

Thank you, middle grade authors, who write the kind of books that make a difference. (See sidebar for many, many links.)

And finally, thank you, supportive readers and followers, for making me feel like the work that I've put in to this blog means something to somebody. Lori Clark, Jenilyn Collings, Tasha Seegmiller, Kate Birch, Rosalyn Eves, Helen Boswell, Bridget Lee, Charmayne Orton, Deanna Romito, and everyone who has read the blog or shared it with others. You are wonderful!


  1. You're so sweet! I love your blog and certainly love you more! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Thank you! I enjoy your blog and like that I have a list of good books to add to my collection and have my kids read.
