Ms. Huibregtse loves reading and loves books! Independent Reading is a focus in her classroom. “The more you read, the better you get. The better you get, the more you read.” She is not sure who to credit this quote to, but it guides her planning and instruction. A good book allows students to learn about new places, ideas, and about themselves.
