Whenever I think of my fifth-grade teacher, I think of learning to love reading -- a love that led me to want to write. Mr. Spathe always read us stories at the end of the school day. He kept us mesmerized, illustrating every detail and movement with his voice and his gestures, helping the story come alive. I then became an avid reader. Reading books brought the pages to life for me as I traveled the world or visited other centuries.
