Christmas in September!!
Today was one of those moments that was too exciting not to share. I wish everyone could have the experience of opening a box of brand new library books and squealing with delight! If not, you get the next best thing--my description of the moment in this blog.
Side bar #2: Many people will tell you that educators should have blogs for a variety of reasons. Steve Wheeler's blog offers the best list of 7 reasons why educators should blog. This blog wasn't started for educational purposes--I just wanted a way to share the random thoughts on my mind. I have no audience in mind when writing this, although I know my mom reads every post (Hi Mama!!!!!). There are 10 people who subscribe to this blog. If nothing else, hopefully I've given people something to think about in at least one of my blog posts.
Go curl up with a good book and read! More new books I got to read today include Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator by Mo Willems, Ish by Peter H. Reynolds, and Those Darn Squirrels! by Adam Rubin. I have one more book order on it's way, and look forward to reading the biographies of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Jaden Smith, and Michael Jackson. Oh, and the book about Okapis (requested by a student). I really do have the BEST JOB EVER!!
