I’ve been following friends and acquaintances all day at the School Library Journal Summit in Austin, Texas. I wanted to go so badly. I even asked my friend Rocco Staino about possible funding sources. He and Samantha McManus (Sullivan Middle, Rock Hill) both told me to apply for a state library travel grant.
When I finally did follow their advice, though, I applied for travel funds to attend AASL’s 16th Annual Conference planned for November 14-17 in Hartford, CT. It really was a tough decision. I am happy to report my travel plans are in the works. I did get the grant. But I will be using this funding to attend AASL’s conference.
Twitter to the Rescue; I’m inspired
So now I follow the SLJ Summit from home. So glad many attending are quite generous with their tweeting. It’s the next best thing, and it inspires me to be sure I tweet as much as possible from Hartford next month!
