I don't remember why I found this question but it got my thinking about the woman who got me reading, it was my 6-8th grade teacher. I spent a lot of time with her my 6th grade year, because I was doing two grades in one, 5th and 6th. She had me read a lot of books to play catch up with the rest of the class. I didn't know books could take me away like that. It made me feel like I was in a different world. I got away from all the schoolwork all the things going wrong at home. It made me happy, made life better. It's been over ten years and my love for reading as only gotten stronger. She made such a huge difference in my life, taught me so many lessons, she's always been my favorite teacher. Who inspired your love of reading? Let me know in the comments below.
