Extended Profile

Hi there, fellow bibliophile! I'm a 7th grade language arts/gifted education teacher in suburban St. Louis. I love to read, so I'm here to share my passion of reading, beginning with my favorite and loved books. I used to teach remedial reading, so releasing these books for me is a way I can share that gift with everyone. I have three kids - all but one are voracious readers. Believe it or not, I have not done the Book Club thing because when I'm assigned to read, it blows my karma! And just a word of caution: during the school year, I tend to get beleagured in duties, so it takes me some time to read a book because I'm usually reading YA Lit to keep up with my students! :-)

It's very hard for me to release books, so I hope you enjoy my selections. At least, they're not collecting dust, and I can free some space to read and release more!

I am not able to send books via International Postage due to financial constraints, but I will gladly re-release International Books if sent to me or trade or release with you or pay postage to trade domestically in the US.

I have a lot to read yet, and still don't have a proper and inclusive list maintained, but here's a link to some of my favorite wishes.My Wish List Thanks, Cliff1976!
