I have been compiling a list of reading mentors. These reading mentors have shaped who I am as a reader, a writer, a teacher, a person, or all of these things... I plan on profiling them this month at TRWH. I hope that I can be a reading mentor to people in my life (and in my classroom) this year for March is Reading Month and beyond.
Right now- grab a scrap of paper.
Write down people who shaped you as a reader.
A friend who loaned you a book?
A teacher who elevated your thinking?
A librarian whose read-aloud made your heart fill?
An aunt who delivered the perfect book whenever you needed it?
What did you learn about yourself-or about other readers- from your reading mentors?
