My name is Aly, and I am an educator, writing mentor, book geek, and blogger. I say that I have to read children’s and YA literature because of my job but really I just love MG and YA books. During the day, I work with elementary students. My passion is getting my students excited about books, reading, and writing. At other times, I can be found as a writing mentor for teen girls with WriteGirl.

When I don’t have my nose in a book, I enjoy hanging with friends, cooking, listening to music, or seeing a live performance.

Books are nearly always better than their movie version, and I am more likely to become a complete babbling fool in the presence of my favorite authors than some famous movie star.
