Meet the Teacher

 Hi everyone,

I’m Shaquita Gates-Garner, a talkative teacher dedicated to improving children’s love of reading! I’ve been a teacher for 10 years and still get butterflies when I step in front of a new class of students. I enjoy teaching any and everything that deals with ELA!

A few years ago, I taught at a predominately black school and didn't have the resources (including books) necessary to ensure my students success. I was even more surprised that the school didn't provide more books that included black and brown main characters. So, I started this blog to provide literacy resources that are EMPOWERING, ENGAGING, and DIVERSE.

A little more about me:

+ I am married with five beautiful plant babies & a baby pup on the way. :)

+ I enjoy TRAVELING! My favorite place to be is on the beach in an hammock. My goal is to travel to all 50 states!

+ I love SOUL FOOD! Well, all food! Invite me to a new restaurant and I’m there with fork and knife.

+ I enjoy READING children’s books! My favorite childhood book is Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale & Knuffle Bunny. I love books with a good lesson learned!

I can’t wait for you to join theMINDFULreaders family!!
