In this video, I’m recommending some of my favorite middle grade and young adult books.

Hi! My name is Tia and I am an educator and advocate for children. I love reading and I’m passionate about including multicultural literature in the classroom. I love to travel and learn about other cultures. I live under the theme of “extending beyond borders” as I encourage others, as well as myself, to live and learn without limits. It is my hope that you’ll find resources for your classroom and inspiration for your personal growth.

Are you a teacher in need of literacy ideas and resources? Do you want to grow personally as you help your students grow? Follow my blog at
Extend Beyond Borders is a resource for educators looking for methods to use multicultural and diverse literature in the classroom. We also seek to nurture the teachers’ personal growth through faith and travel. Here you’ll find inspiration to live and learn without limits!

I also offer FREE graphic organizers and writing prompts here that can be used for any book here: you found this video to be helpful, please like and subscribe!
