Two Worlds Collide!
Today, my books and bling life and literacy teacher life get to collide again. I love when this happens!
I love reading. Even more that that, I love people who love reading!
So, when I had the chance to write a post for the awesome Nerdy Book Club, I was all in! These are my people! I feel so at home with the Nerdy Book Club. Though I try to visit a variety of blogs, this is the one I never miss!

I hope you join all the Nerdy Book Club awesomeness! It really is great to be Nerdy!
I have amazing authors in my classes. And poets. And comic makers. And artists. And all around awesome kids.
The world doesn’t always stop to recognize them. That’s a shame!
I am looking for some cool contests that my students can enter.
Below are the contests that I know about:

What am I missing or forgetting about?
