Anna is the child of Mennonites from Mexico, who have come north to harvest fruit and vegetables. Sometimes she feels like a bird, flying north in the spring and south in the fall, sometimes like a jackrabbit in an abandoned burrow, since her family occupies an empty farmhouse near the fields, sometimes like a kitten, as she shares a bed with her sisters . . . But above all Anna wonders what it would be like to be a tree rooted deeply in the earth, watching the seasons come and go, instead of being like a "feather in the wind."

I am very passionate about teaching the importance of loving to learn! I like to instill in my students that learning never stops, no matter how old you get. And learning doesn't stop just because you are out of school... you keep the hunger for knowledge alive always, and this will help you be your best authentic self and help make the world a better place!

I have close to 45 bright students, all in need of being exposed to rich text and the importance of reading! We are a Title 1 school, and all resources are precious and greatly appreciated. Many of them do not have books or resources in their homes, so it is very important to me to be able to help open those doors for them.
