WHAT A YEAR!
Diana & I had many presentations, implementation of new programs & eLearning adventures. Diana started a new library position. I continued my professional journey at PGE.
1-We both got received grants and assisted in writing other grants. I received 2. One was to "Facelift" the KellerISD Traveling Museum and the other was to add "Cubes" to the maker space experience. We, both, assisted with the writing of a grant for $10,000 of new books for our new book bus. YES! Keller ISD will have a new permanent Book Bus to use year around to promote lifelong learning & reading.
2-Many presentations have engaged us. We always believe we are better when we share. We have presented at EdCamps, TCEA, Keller University, Service Center & staff PD. The presentations included Seesaw, Google Classroom, books & tech, STEAM Backpacks.(Click on the "Presentations Tab" to see our uploaded presentations.) Diana presented many more presentations. Her focus on many of those are around creating Librarians as school leaders.
3-Of course, we expanded our digital/virtual libraries present. In fact, this inspired our TCEA proposal for 2021. We as a KellerISD Librarian group have and continues to expand our digital/virtual presence. We are using podcasts, Storytimes, morning announcements, curriculum digital collections, PD, Book Clubs, & YouTube Live.
