Summer Wrap-up

The summer has FLOWN by. What have I done?

  • Went to California for vacation and for ALA Conference
  • Along with that trip to California, I went to Vegas and got the vows renewed by Elvis
  • I became President of the South Carolina Association of School Librarians
  • I graded some papers for a USC class
  • I played with my dogs
  • I spent time with my family
  • I spent too much time on FaceBook and Plurk
  • I stopped spending time on MySpace and Twitter
  • I read the Twilight series
  • I hosted my first board retreat for SCASL
  • I started working at a new school
  • I spent some time with friends

Overall, a very productive summer!

What goals do I have for the new school year?

  • Finish setting up new library (bookcases came yesterday – I HOPE!)
  • Get to know new teachers and students
  • Have fun at work
  • Be a successful and productive leader of SCASL
  • Stay on top of deadlines
  • Try not to say YES to too much (need to concentrate on what I’ve already agreed to)
  • See my Gamecocks win

That’s it! I can do it!

I hope everyone has a great school year…I really do hope to blog on a regular basis…I think I’m going a good job, considering I’ve got three to keep up with (SCASL, this one, and NPES). So there.
