Chicago Public Library's: Bam! The Power of Comics and Graphics
This conference was needed in my life as I am now running a Anime/Manga Club. Besides the awesome keynote address, my favorite presentation was by CAKE.
Thank you Lydia Breiseth for the donation of much needed books. Lydia is the Manager of the Learning of the Media Department at WETA Public Television in Colorin, Colorado. She read about the Phillips Library Media Center and generously donated books for my avid readers. On behalf of my students, many-many-many thanks!

Attending this leadership summit has inspired me greatly. I am so glad I attended and had the opportunity to meet so many leaders in the school library world. I can't wait to attend next year!

The Strangest Things Take Place In the Library Media Center
Have you ever really took a look inside of your student's bookbag? Normally you will find chips, a water bottle, books and other teen items. One of my students Cameron carries a lint brush everywhere he goes. Always concerned about his appearance, 'he wants to look good'.
Students Helping Each Other:
Cameron gives Orlanda a lesson on ironing dress pants with a crease before she heads off to work.
|See, you do it like this!|
|Make sure the iron is set at the correct temperature.|
Lunch Periods in the LMC: Peer Tutoring, Socializing, Computer Access and more.

Mistakes Are Made
Why did I say I have a new Galaxy Note 4? Here you see the children decided to take selfies...with my phone.
