Several years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting author and former UGA wide receiver and current New England Patriot's wide receiver, Malcolm Mitchell. Since then, he has become an advocate for literacy and one of my heroes. I wanted to include this page on my website because you will hear me speak about him often in our classroom. He can be a source of inspiration to you in our reading classroom as you struggle with more lengthy chapter books and complex vocabulary words. Hear his story and then find out what he is up to now to promote a love for reading in young children, just like you!
