NH Educational Media Conference

Day one has been jammed packed and lots of fun. Keynote given by Toni Buzzeo. She spoke about the importance of librarians in the NCLB era and stressed that we need to advocate for our positions. Too many library teachers are being replaced by reading specialists or literacy teachers.

Luncheon speaker was Cynthia Lord. What a wonderful speaker. She had us all a bit weepy at the end but it was a good feeling.

I went to Toni's afternoon workshop on collaboration and got some good ideas.

The NH Great Stone Face book award was announced. The award went to Rules by Cynthia Lord. And she was here to accept!! Too cool.

And Michael Sullivan and I did our He Said She Said booktalks. Always lots of fun for us. Neither of us knows what books that other has brought so it is interesting to see how we'll work it out.

Tonight was dinner with people I don't see often enough. End of a long day. And another great day set for tomorrow.
