Saving the World Through Literacy!

Proud to be Nerdy!

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!

Check it out here:

I hope you join all the Nerdy Book Club awesomeness! It really is great to be Nerdy!

Looking for a few good WRITING CONTESTS!


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:

Promising Young Writers:

New to me–Barron Prize:

I am the chair of the Leslie Walker Memorial Essay Contest (Georgia only):
