|Presenting at NYLA with Miss Kosmerl, Mrs. Brisky, and Mrs. Pierce|
While at NYLA, we visited a booth featuring a "big bacon" that you could take your picture in! Of course, I couldn't resist.
Another booth at NYLA featured a display where people were invited to share why they became a librarian. I became a librarian because I was inspired by my high school librarian, Kit Howard. To this day, I am convinced that she is the world's best librarian!
In October, I attended the New York State Middle School Association Conference with Miss Schaper. We presented about last year's district-wide nonfiction project. It was very exciting to share the great work that Pioneer students did last year. The teachers that listened to our presentation were amazed by the quality of the nonfiction books that Pioneer students produced.
While at the conference, we attended a session about social media. Although there are many wonderful positives to social media, it was frightening to hear about all of the dangers associated with it as well. This is definitely a topic I want to learn more about.
Looking forward to attending more conferences in the spring.
