Reading with Mrs. Delaney
Read. Reflect. Repeat.
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin
The importance of literacy was instilled in me at an early age, and I understand now more than ever why reading and writing are such essential skills. I am extremely passionate about literacy because I know the opportunities available to active, reflective readers and the experiences missed by those who fall short in this area.
My dedication to reading is great, but my reading philosophy is simple. Children learn to read by reading and being given opportunities to reflect on reading. Edmond Burke said it best, "Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting", and I believe that everyone deserves to read and eat well. Let's start reading!
