The SCASL Conference began today in Columbia, SC. I missed the preconference sessions and opening reception.  I feel bad, as I could have driven down right after school today at least for the reception.

An Open Letter to Mrs. Munroe

Change is hard for some

When I think of my topic here today, I am reminded that change is hard.  Each time a software package has updated to a newer version, I have lamented how I liked the old one fine!!  Things are moved around.  Actions cause new unexpected actions. I can’t find the menus or tricks I used to […]

Okay so it is hard to process all that took place at the School Library Journal Leadership Summit from this weekend.  It may take a series of days before this actually gets posted.  I arrived Thursday afternoon, and promptly went to eat a late lunch/early supper right across the street at Joe’s Seafood, Prime Rib […]
