I love reading the blogs of other literacy lovers. One such person is Donalyn Miller at The Book Whisperer. (Thanks Shannon at Extreme Reading and Writing for teaching me how to do this!) I’ve read Donalyn’s book, The Book Whisperer and loved it. Then I found her blog and loved that as well. Then, unbelievably, I met her at the State of Maryland International Reading Association Conference (SOMIRAC) last year. She was so down to earth and immediately started a conversation with me. She truly seemed to enjoy talking to “fans” and loved talking about books. Her session was awesome too! I don’t know why I thought she would be any different…She still inspires me to be a better reading teacher each day. This is why I’ve chosen Donalyn Miller as my first Inspiration  Post.  Maybe somewhere along the time continuum, she’ll read this post and add it to the thousands of others she’s seen naming her as an inspiration. Thanks Donalyn!!
