Discover Me Challenge: 1 – Teachers Who Inspire

Welcome to the very first Discover Me Challenge!
In the spirit of Back to School, I thought it would be fitting to kick off the DMC with something school related – Teachers Who Inspire!
No matter what our experiences may have been in school, I am willing to bet that every single person has had at least one teacher who has inspired them. These special teachers may have pushed us to work harder, believe ourselves more, gave us the nod that allowed us to just be us, or gave us someone to look up to when there was no one else. Whatever the reason, I am sure we all have an teacher who inspired us.
In this first challenge, lets call out those inspiring teachers. Who are they, what did they mean to you and how have they inspired you as an adult?
next prompt will be posted Sept. 15

I'd love to hear from you!

  • Tomorrow, The Ostrich and Other Lost Things by Beth Hautala will finally be released and I couldn’t recommend this fantastic middle-grade book more. It’s been a fast favorite -  dealing with family, unconditional love and autism in a way I’ve not experienced before. It is beautiful and it reaches. 
But that’s an entirely different book, right? I picked up this beauty because I loved The Ostrich so much that I needed to find Beth’s first book. So, here is Waiting for Unicorns and you can take a guess at what I’ll be reading today!

  • I’m so in love with this “new” old desk. My reading nook has been replaced with a writing nook. I read anywhere and everywhere, so this is a welcomed change. Now I have a place to explore my own ideas.

  • After coming off a book that completely gutted me (but was brilliantly written) I might need some “fluff”. From what I’ve gathered, this book isn’t it. Apparently, I love to torment myself with stories that grab at my heart and soul. .
