As you are probably aware, I spent over forty years as an educator. You have no doubt observed, it is difficult, if not impossible, for me to avoid teaching wherever I go (in truth I have given up on trying).
In that spirit, I would like you to join me in honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in a Day of Reading Around the Region on Monday, January 16. This is a program championed by the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc., an organization of educators that I have been a member of for four decades.
Dr. King was a passionate believer in reading and education. They enable us to improve ourselves, see a world beyond our own, and dare to dream about better society, one that ensures justice and opportunity for every person . As Dr. King said, “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broad concerns of all humanity.” Reading sets us all on that path.
Participation in the Day of Reading is really simple; just commit to read for one hour on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday January 16.
You can read for a straight hour or divide it up into 30, 20, or 15-minute sessions. You can read as an individual, read to your children, in a group, at home, school, church, a library, or wherever you decide. Please encourage friends and family to participate. The important thing is to READ.
I am counting on all of those in the 79th District and beyond to have the largest reading block in the state.
I hope you will join me!
