I am 29 year old teacher who discovered Harry Potter when my students with special needs asked me to read it them. I was hooked and fell in love. I have read all the books multiple times. Every year I read at least the first book to my students and we do all sorts of activities. I use Harry Potter in connection with all of the subjects.  I am currently working on my doctorate for special education.
