The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
PQ2637 .A274 P43713 1982 or PZ8.S14 Li 1971

The Little Prince reminds me to look beyond the the obvious, and to enjoy a childlike sense of wonder in learning and sharing new ideas and experiences.  He is a wonderful piece of children's literature who also speaks to the  hearts of adults.

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

View a partial list of articles written by José Mendoza, available in the ERIC database.


First of all, I learned while I was enrolled and attending at Peoria High School that reading would help me excel and achieve in school. Therefore, I read a book a day and a book on weekends. The result of that is that my vocabulary increased by the thousands. I read all those books for three and a half years. I was able to excel in my high school studies and learning became very easy for me and I attained the honor roll without effort, because I had developed learning tools that helped me with all my classes. When I took the ACT College Board Exam in 1969, I attained the score of the top 1% of all the students who took that test on that year and time in the nation. As a result, I was awarded 18 college credits 6 in English, 6 in social sciences, and 6 in mathematics.

For me, reading was the "key to everything", and helped make me what I am today. In college, I was able to use my deductive and inductive skills, develop my logic skills, and learned most subjects very rapidly. I was able to write very good research papers and always received recognition by my instructors for the quality of my papers and the depth of my understanding and usage of the English language. This continued on to graduate school as my papers always stood out according to my professors. They also complemented me on my verbal skills in all my classes.

For me, my first major book that got me going was The Call of the Wild by Jack London. From there on, I was hooked on reading and it allowed me to achieve my higher education. To this day, I have published over eight articles through the in ERIC Clearing House for Community Colleges when they were located at UCLA. They, the ERIC researchers keep pestering for me to write more as they state that I have contributed to the "body of knowledge" in higher education.

Therefore, I do whatever I can to get young and older Hispanics and other minorities turned on to reading, knowing that it will be the catalyst for their educational development and success.

That is why reading is so important to me.

The Courage to Teach : Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life, by Parker J. Palmer
LB1775 .P25 1998

I love this book, I re-read it all the time! 

Why do I love this book? Well..., like the author, Parker Palmer, says: "This book is for teachers that have good days and bad." Since I've been known to have a bad a day or two...!

However, on a serious note, I am a teacher with a passion for the profession, and this book revitalizes that passion and heart.  Another great quote from Palmer is:  "To educate is to guide students on an inner journey toward more truthful ways of seeing and being in the world."

I highly recommend this book to veteran teachers, as well as to the new ones entering the profession for the first time.  Happy reading!

I enjoyed Stephen Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People because it states, in simple fashion, principles that all of us can follow and live by on a daily basis that will enrich our personal and professional lives.
