About Us

Brei and Jacinda (aka Jay)


In an effort to promote literacy in youth and adults, I created this website (and now Jacinda is helping me with it!) as a review of books that I have recently read. As an English teacher and lover of words, I understand the power of words in teaching us to become better readers, writers, but also better people. Books teach us about the world we live in - tolerance, diversity, personal struggles, etc. In reading, we can better understand ourselves and others around us.

I currently teach English to 7th graders.  I have my Bachelors of Arts in English from Western Michigan University and a Masters Degree in Divergent Learning (Education) through Columbia College in South Carolina.
