I’m back!

Hello all! I’m back from the fabulous American Association of School Librarians conference in Hartford Connecticut. I feel so fortunate to have gone, not only for the experience of seeing some of the East Coast but for all I learned and the people I met. I am excited to bring some new ideas to the library and library classes. I also came home with some fun new books a few of which are signed by the authors. Here are some pictures from my trip and a sampling of some of the books I brought home.

Here I am with Author Jackie Mims Hopkins, former librarian extraordinary turned delightful story teller and author. I did purchase some of her books and I am waiting for them to be shipped to me.

Connecticut is about 2.5 hours to NYC by train and I couldn't let that opportunity pass me by. As Drama Club Director here at SPAS I had to see BROADWAY as well as some other famous NYC sites.

I met so many amazing librarians and teachers. Here I am with my new friend Susan from Kentucky! She is a kindergarten teacher and future librarian. We has such a fun time learning new ideas together and bonding over stories of our children. Follow her on Twitter @soverton1199

Goodbye Connecticut and AASL13. You were amazing, fun, inspirational and exhausting. I can't wait to do it again.
