About meI am an elementary school teacher in St. Petersburg, Florida, currently in the process of obtaining my master's degree in LIS at Florida State University. Go 'Noles! The last time I took a children's literature class was during my undergrad coursework at Ohio University. I read all the Caldecott Award winning books to date and critiqued them. It was a lot of work, but I thoroughly enjoyed the books. I currently use children's literature in my fifth grade classroom to teach standards in the content areas, to help my students understand math concepts, and for enjoyment. I also choose a group to focus on the Sunshine State Young Readers Award list of books, as those are the books used for our statewide reading competition, the Battle of the Books.
About my libraryMy library at school consists of award winning books and other teacher read-alouds for sharing with my fifth graders, and at home, loads of cookbooks!
