SCASL Conference-Day 3

Last day of conference.

Mary and I gave our presentation about Blogging and Podcasting (handouts here!)

Went to Sharon Draper’s session which was followed by Jacqueline Woodson’s session. WOW, they were both really great.

From there I went to the Author’s Lunch. Very nice way to end up SCASL Conference 2007.

My favorite part of conference and the part where I wish I had a picture to post??? Re-meeting my high school english teacher, Bob Raven. Bob Raven was THE teacher who made me a reader. Yes, I went to the public library almost weekly as a kid, but in middle school and high school, the reading I was doing was because I HAD to and not because I WANTED to. Bob Raven made me a reader and made me love words. He is now in library school and will be the media specialist at Sumter High School starting in August. He was at conference and that was the first time I had seen him since high school! It’s funny how life works, no?

Have a restful weekend!

    What an awesome testimonial. You should podcast it so you can be heard reliving that meeting. Thanks for sharing.

    You really need to TAG the posts so they show up in technorati searches AND so that Hitchhikr would have picked them up.
