A few weeks ago in Young Adult Literature, Dr. Balok had one of her former students address the class during our focus on the novel Dope Sick. Originally, she was an English Education major but then decided to get her masters and become a reading specialist. After hearing her talk about it I researched the roles of reading specialists in schools and it has become something that I am seriously thinking of pursuing after I get a degree in teaching. I think it is something I would enjoy, and I cannot get the thought of it out of my head. I am a very indecisive person so it may take some time before I make my final decision. I mentioned to Dr. Balok about the opportunity seeming like something I may want to pursue one day. Her advice: keep thinking about it- and that is just what I am doing and will continue to do until the time comes when I have made a decision.
