Breathing Underwater
Alex Finn
Intelligent, popular, handsome, and wealthy, sixteen-year-old Nick Andreas is pretty much perfect — on the outside, at least. What no one knows — not even his best friend — is the terror that Nick faces every time he is alone with his father. Then he and Caitlin fall in love, and Nick thinks his problems are over. Caitlin is the one person who he can confide in. But when things start to spiral out of control, Nick must face the fact that he’s gotten more from his father than green eyes and money.

ispeakquotes:

There is a story many years ago of an elementary teacher. Her name was Mrs. Thompson. And as she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children a lie. Like most teachers, she looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same.

But that…

I really enjoyed this book, but I don’t recommend reading the second or third books after this. They just went down hill with each one afterwards.

There are so many wonderful, wacky Amelia Bedelia books to be read. I love the humor in the books and children will too.

My Student Teaching Life: Snow Day Stress

Uploaded my next post about Student Teaching stress caused by a snow day. 

Flowers for Algernon
Daniel Keyes
Charlie Gordon, IQ 68, is a floor sweeper, and the gentle butt of everyone&#8217;s jokes, until an experiment in the enhancement of human intelligence turns him into a genius. But then Algernon, the mouse whose triumphal experimental tranformation preceded his, fades and dies, and Charlie has to face the possibility that his salvation was only temporary.
