School Library Month, 2015

School Library Month has been so much fun.  I participated in a number of online forums, meetings, training sessions and of course Twitter hangouts.  All in all, it was great.  Here's a video my Behind the Paws and Anime/Manga Club made celebrating this special month.

I had the wonderful opportunity to give a presentation on the use of social media in the classroom.  Check out the many wonderful presentations here:

The students...

I'm SO in love with this shirt I purchased off of Amazon.com!

Sometimes I Have to Indulge

Whenever I get a little down time, I read.  Lately I've been drawn to the drama in the teen series called, "Rumor Central," by Reshonda Tate Billingsley.   There is so much drama in these books for teens and I must admit, I'm hooked!

A Taste of Spring!

We failed at origami but excelled in color!
