Ignite Your Love of Reading!

“Growing up, my family spent a lot of time visiting the library, but as I got older and academic work piled up, I only read assigned books. When I became a teacher, I decided that the best way I could connect with my students was to read what they read. That’s all I needed to connect back to reading and realize how valuable it is in my life. So what could I do to make sure that my students learn to love reading?” –St. Luke’s Head of Middle School Amber Berry
