Reading books is one of my favorite ways to learn new things and better understand the world. I try to read every day, even when I’m busy and traveling. I’m excited to share with you what I'm reading, the people I meet, and what I'm learning. I hope that you'll join the conversation here and on my blog, gatesnotes.com.

Bill Gates met with 2019 Washington State Teacher of the Year, Robert Hand, who teaches his students how to take care of themselves after they graduate.
