Creating: a poetry-rich library environment with fun interactive displays to celebrate Poetry Month! I have a black-out poetry station, some book spine poetry made by my student assistants, and a "magnet" poetry that isn't actually magnetic. What can I say? I don't have much metal. We used special reusable double-sided sticky tape on laminated cut-out words. We have windows. It works.
Reading: The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See on audiobook, Ray Bradbury's essays on writing in The Zen of Writing, and The Reader by Traci Chee.
Planning for: TLA ---the Texas Library Association conference. It is simply the best conference ever. Over 8000 librarians of all stripes gathered together for learning and fun. What could be better? Oh yeah, it is in my favorite TLA city this year (they rotate)---San Antonio. So, yeah. The Alamo, great Tex-Mex, books and margaritas? yes, please!
Pondering: how I can best meet the needs of my students, my teachers, my admin, my district librarians, and others; how I can grow as an encourager.
Wanting: to exercise. I've managed to strain my calf muscles and it has set me back from moving as much as I like and as I should. Ready to fully mend.
Celebrating: School Librarians Day (today!) and School Library Month (all of April)
