My name is Heather (Mrs. Peter) and I reside in room 918. Of course I don’t really live there, but sometimes it feels like I do. However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I enjoy sharing my passion for books, , especially YA books, with my students. It is my goal that every reader in my class find that one book that brings out the life-long reader inside of them.
I originally fell in love with YA books when I was in college in my Teaching Adolescent Literature class with Dr. Pam Coke at Colorado State University. The main assignment was to read 3,000 pages of YA but that proved to not be enough for me. I have continued to pick up YA whenever I get the chance.
I started this blog to do what I enjoy, which is share titles with my students, colleagues friends and anybody else who is interested in my opinion. I have since expanded my posts to include reviews by my students. I’m excited to have everybody share in our (the residents of room 918) love for books.
