Welcome Back!!

Wow!  I didn't realize I had been away that long.  Once I finished with grad school I just kind of forgot about all of this. 
I have been in the library since August 2012 and love it!  Why did I not do this 25 years ago?!  I ask myself this all the time.  However long it took me to get here I am just glad this is where I landed. 
I have started working with my 3rd and 4th graders on our district reading competition, Name That Book and really hope that we can bring home medals for this year.  If not, then we will learn from the experience and strive to do better next year. 
I hope and pray that everyone is as happy as I am in their carreers.  God Bless!  And Keep Reading!!
These are my library helpers, fondly called SLACers at the luncheon I cooked for them at the end of the first 9 weeks.  Chicken spaghetti and garlic bread!

Thing 13
Interesting idea being able to share your bookmarks or tags with others. Especially when team planning. Or as a librarian being able to share things that teachers only have to click on instead of type in or copy and paste to be able to get to.

Thing 11

Okay I went to library thing and started my list and posted it on my page. Check back after July 10th and I will add more titles as I read them. Half-price books here I come!!

Thing 10

I really had fun with this. Problem is I am so tired of being on the computer my imagination sux. So I scanned a picture from our family portraits this past Christmas and made a family trading card. Now you can see what my kids look like. Cool

Thing 8

I have made my Google Reader public. Look for it on the sidebar.
What do you like about RSS and readers? It makes it easy to gather thoughts and spewings about things that interest you or your readers.
How do you think you might be able to use this technology in your school or personal life? Probably wouldn't use it in my personal life, right now I am just too busy with school to have a personal life, but could do something like a homework page for parents or link to your school library.
How can libraries/teachers/administrators use readers or take advantage of this new technology? Like the Library2Play site says, "Sharing information is a key component for 21st Century life-long learners ..."

Thing 7

I have used Google Earth several times. The students love being able to see where they live in "real time". I usually start with the school and go out from there, being careful to never show them where I live. LOL
I also liked the calendar. I am forever trying to find a calendar that I can use and that will keep me organized. Of course now I need an organizer for all my calendars.
More to come!
READ! (I am currently reading Charles and Emma, thanks Laura! Good read for those who are interested.)
