The library is quiet. In fact, the entire building is quiet. It is the Friday afternoon that starts the Labor Day weekend, and everyone else hit the door running. I wanted to wrap up a few more things so they wouldn't haunt me over the weekend, but instead I am sitting here savoring the calm and thinking over the school year. I walked into this space one year ago, for a meeting with the principal, and I was so nervous. A hug space, heck - huge students, four times the staff, all new curriculum and literature - how would I ever do it?
I fretted all summer, reading articles and quizzing my high school librarian friends. All of a sudden, I have a year under my belt. Would I do some things differently? Of course. I am proud of some things I started, yes. The most important question of all, did I make a difference in the life of a students, I believe so.
Over this weekend, I will be doing a lot of thinking and probably sharing on this site; but for now, I am content, all in all it was a good year.
What are you proud of? What will you improve next year?
