It is true the longer you teach the easier some things get but the more you want to do. I find as I start this year that items I struggled with when I started are getting much easier. I am able to easily plan lessons, choose books, and determine the order to teach lessons. I know the teacher’s curriculum better and can start predicting when they are going to need certain materials. I am starting new initiatives such as mystery teacher readers, mystery student readers, library clubs, and Science Fair (Yes it is the odd ball item but I love it).
But as these items get easier, I started noticed things I am not doing. I have noticed that through my scavenging through blogs, attending workshops, and reading articles that I have a wealth of knowledge to share but no way to share it. That is how this blog has came to be.
It has taken me a few months to finally start this blog. One factor was time but the silliest item that had me stuck was the blog title. I could not find one that made me excited or motivated to start until the start of this school year. Sometimes the simplest items are our largest stumbling blocks. I overcome my hurdles and excited to start.
This blog is a way for me to start share my findings and musing with my fellow colleagues and anyone who happens across my blog. I will be posting about projects/activities I do with my students, technology I use or teachers can use, and just general library musings.
My long term goal to develop connections through Professional Learning Networks (PLN) so I can share what I know and learn from others. This is just my first baby step into all that is out there to explore who I am, who I can be, and what I can still learn. Wish me luck!
