I was panic stricken when my mid-year conference
& post observation
ran right up until my 2/3 class.
When they left I had ten minutes to
lay out materials
for the 7/8 split for the King County Library System
database extensions & digital citizenship.
Lisa reminded me to
breathe & somehow
we crammed a ninety minute lesson into 30 minutes.
Lisa did a GREAT Vanna White at the white board
while I brought up the
fields on the from the teaching station.
All 32 kids left with their new
They now have unlimited e-books, real-time online
SAT help & hundreds of databases.
Our 7/8 split grade class does not have a weekly
library visit and they come for classes
requested by their teachers or as was the case today,
requested by me.
I truly believe knowledge is power.
Helping these kids to find their power
makes me feel humble before the walking,
breathing, faces of the future.
