Why The Nerdy Book Geek?

     I have pondered beginning a blog for quite some time, and finally decided I needed to step outside my comfort zone and "just do it." I have learned so much from others' blogs and been inspired to be a better teacher, that I decided if I am able to share just a small fraction of my learning and reading as compared to what I have learned from others, I will achieve my goal in paying it forward.
     Why The Nerdy Book Geek? I have always been an avid reader. Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew were my childhood favorites and I wanted to be just like them! Now, my kids jokingly call me a nerd and a geek, as I am seldom without a book. I LOVE to read in the car while my husband drives, and I even read while ironing (weird but true!). When I/we travel I pack books first (or make sure I have enough downloaded), pack hair products second, and worry about clothes last. (I can always buy clothes, but what will I do if I have a reading emergency?) Thus, The Nerdy Book Geek.
     I'm excited, yet intimidated, to begin this new professional adventure!


  1. Yay!!! So proud of you for taking a step out of that comfort zone and starting your blog. I'll look forward to reading more posts! :)

    1. Thanks, Laura! Wouldn't/couldn't have done it without inspiration from people like you!
