I spend way too much time looking at my calendar, and this month it's scaring me silly!
I'm the new sponsor for our school's Scholar's Bowl team and we're deep in the fall season -- I spent the two last Thursday evenings and all day Saturday with those terrific kids. I think I got some cred as coach when "A Modest Proposal" popped up in competition after I drilled them on it just last week. It's taking me way back to my own high school days, and I'm realizing how much participating in something which showcased my own strengths meant to me at that age. And at school, it's Homecoming week -- the kids (and faculty) here go all out.
I went as Coraline get up for costume day Wednesday and seeing who recognized "me" was very gratifying.
I have to make a dash up to DC this weekend for the Newseum Teacher Open House... come if you're in the area for an introduction to their great teacher resources and some superior swag.
Want to come to gorgeous Point Clear for our 2015 Alabama Library Association Conference next April? Program proposals are open...
