The every-other-year experience that is the AASL National Conference really IS the ultimate professional experience for school librarians. I've added more sessions than I could ever attend to my conference planner -- oh! the conflicts... -- but I'm very excited to see old friends and meet new ones in Minneapolis.
You can catch me ---
- at the full-day preconference Wednesday on 21st Century Collections with Angela Carstensen, Buffy Hamillton, Frances Harris, and Laura Pearle
- at a Thursday learning commons discussion of school librarian image and proactive ways to combat negative stereotypes which dog us
- in a Friday session on leadership routes in school libraries, with Sarah Kelly Johns, Gwyneth Jones, Shannon Miller, Margaux DelGuidice, and Laura Warren-Gross.
I am also going on the F. Scott Fitzgerald walking tour and will be blogging for the AASL blog throughout. Hope to see you there!
