Hello, my name is Tessa and I'm a retired librarian. I always enjoyed my job working in the library because I love to read and I wanted to share the joy of reading with others. Reading is not only an enjoyable pastime, but it also helps to keep the mind active and everyone can learn something new when reading a book. I believe that all people, regardless of age, should continue to educate themselves throughout their lifetime and this can be easily achieved through reading. I hope that when reading my education and development blog, you'll take on the challenge of continued learning and you'll gain both knowledge and enjoyment.
