It’s my first picture day as a teacher librarian! I actually have been in a yearbook since my senior pictures graced the pages of my high school’s yearbook – my “Book Lovers’ Club” was featured in a yearbook, and the kids insisted that I was in the picture too. That was nice. But the angst of picture day . . . oh well. They can’t do much about my extra chin, sadly. (And, whilst practicing for pictures with my handy dandy computer camera, I’m reminded of what my daughter said to me a few months ago: “I can’t believe no one’s ever told you that you have a huge nose.” Wha, wha, what???)
Lots of exciting things are going on in the library and can I just say, I am very glad that I started in July because I’d be freaking out if I was starting in the middle of August. In less than a month, the students will be here, and I still have so much to do. But it is coming together.
I’ve been around the blogosphere a bit. My friend and author Bri Clark had an interesting quandary, with a school librarian being bullied and I put my two cents in – at length or course. I commented about what we’re doing with ebooks on the Unquiet Librarian’s blog. I wrote on my school blog about what’s going on in the elementary library. I read this article about how we can’t teach students to love reading. And I ordered a camera cable, so I’ll be able to post pictures soon. But for now, I get to practice using Flickr and the Iowa AEA’s clip art! 🙂
