Reading is important.

"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."

Richard Steele (1672-1729) Dublin-born British essayist

Read across America was today. I took 26 kids from my school to read Dr. Suess books to Kindergarten through Third grade students at a nearby elementary school, Cloverdale. We all had a blast. I was so happy to see my kids excited to read. They laughed and joked about how they made mistakes, but the little kids didn't even notice. I think it really gave them a boost. I have some very good memories of teaching at elementary school. I wished I would have taken some pictures. The smiles today made me feel so good inside. Someday I'll go back to elementary school and teach. The rest of the day went well.
