The most important thing I learned while in the InLA program was my identity as a teacher. Our program exposed me to instructional strategies and classroom values that guided the creation of my personal teaching philosophy. Coursework, field experiences, and faculty alike gave me the tools and opportunities I needed to figure out who I am as a professional, and to enter my future classroom with confidence and enthusiasm.
I am so excited to invite students to use my classroom library. I have over 100 books to shelve so far, and I add books to my wish list all the time.
Helping to create generations of life-long readers is one of my goals as a teacher, and I hope that my students will be able to grow their love of reading using the resources I have.
