Andrea ProfileHello There!

My name is Andrea Payan and I live in Milwaukee, WI. I teach 4th grade in a large urban district and embrace the challenges that are inherent in this type of work. I love to read. I read every day and have a mild to moderate book buying problem. My classroom library is overflowing with excellent book choices, because the best thing on Earth is to help students find the passion for reading and to create voracious readers.

This blog started with the intention of sharing book recommendations and reviews. It has morphed into a blog chronicling my life and especially the trials and tribulations as well as the triumphs of teaching in the 21st century.

I am glad you came to visit me here. My opinions are my own and do not reflect those of my employer.
