I read for at least a half hour each day during the school 
day.  It took me many, many years to feel comfortable 
enough to even try it.  I would guiltily read the journals 
for book reviews, making sure that people would know that 
they were work related magazines.  I decided that reading 
during the day when students might walk in on me was a 
great example of modeling.  The teachers in my building 
wholeheartedly support my habit as it makes me much better 
informed, which ends up benefitting them.  Yes, I still 
read at home, listen to books in the car, but also at 
work.  Once when I was caught reading by the curriculum 
director,  I felt I needed to explain myself.  She looked 
at me as if I was crazy and replied that it was part of my 
job.  I guess I feel fortunate that I have such support. 
 There will always be something else I could be doing, but 
I will continue to read, as my pleasure is also my work.
