New school year, new opportunities!

One week of school under my belt, and I am still excited about this year! My students are so thrilled to be back in the library media center, even "nagging" their teachers to schedule orientation times with me so that they would be able to begin their flexible check out. What powerful advocates they are, both to their teachers and their parents. In response to that, I plan to extend and enhance that enthusiasm in every way possible.

Here are my goals for this school year:
  • I will share the newest technology and Web 2.0 sites available and offer ways to use them to foster inquiry and learning;
  • I will use any means at my disposal (book fairs, grant writing, PTO requests, and more) to continually make available new book titles and share them with students both in whole class and individual student situations.
  • I will suggest curriculum tie ins to my faculty, and offer to collaborate.
  • I will maintain my cheery disposition all day every day even if those around me are not.
  • I will find time to professionally develop myself, make time to share with library colleagues, and make time for myself personally!
