I spent yesterday building bookshelves with my father-in-law and my wife’s uncle. When I accepted a new position, in the elementary I attended as a child, I realized that I didn’t really have any bookshelves. Thankfully, I have family members that would do anything to help me out.
Yesterday’s bookshelf building party helped remind me that educating a child takes a team, and the more people in your corner that you have, the more successful you will be.
I feel blessed to have so many people in my corner.
On Saturday, during my Newbery Challenge video, I’ll share how the bookshelves look in my classroom.
