I finished up The Lost Hero by Mr. Riordan. That man can do no wrong when it comes to writing. He is just a genius. Then I picked up Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea. I've heard wonderful things about this book and it's been waiting in my stack for almost a month. I settled in with my furry blanket, glasses, and foot warmer (my cat). As I cracked the spine open, I became a bit jittery. Here we go....
Before I begin, I must state that I am a slow reader...I call it one who likes to savor every moment. I finished this book in a few short hours, it just pulls you right in.
Before I began writing this post, I checked my school email and was excited to find two letters from two of my past students. Asking how life was treating me and what book recommendations I had for them. We inspire students everyday and hopefully make their lives better. This book reinforced how much I love teaching and how influential one person can really be. We all have at least one teacher who we will always remember. Who is that teacher for you?
