Hi. I am Zack Barnes, and welcome to A to Z Book Reviews. I am a special education teacher at Metro Nashville Public Schools, and I am also a PhD candidate in Literacy Studies at MTSU. When I am not teaching or reading, I am working on my dissertation.

zack profile 2As a middle school teacher, I will be reviewing a lot of a middle grade (MG) fiction. I read a lot of MG books so that I can personally recommend those books to my students. I’ll also be reviewing a wide variety of books that I read, including nonfiction, young adult, and spy thrillers.

I am also a freelance writer interested in education, science, politics and interviews. My writings have appeared in The Tennessean, Education Post, Nashville Scene, Memphis Daily News, and Nashville Ledger. I helped create Tennessee Education Report, an education and public policy blog.
