I am in Springfield today, attending and presenting at the ISLMA (Illinois School Library Association Conference) and finding great resources and ideas for Patton School students! Authors to meet and talk to are everywhere as well. Gail Komarek from Windsor LMC and I are presenting this afternoon on Using Multicultural Literature within the Common Core. More later...
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
