I've been away long enough!
I recently became an elementary & middle school librarian!! I found out I got the job a whopping FIVE days before school started, so I've been scrambling these last weeks to become comfortable in my new role.
After some growing pains the first couple of weeks, I've settled in quite nicely. I have kids from age 4 to 14, so I have the pleasure of experiencing the full gamut of children's and young adult literature on a daily basis. My upper elementary and middle school students are enjoying my read alouds right now.
We're reading The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo (5th grade), Loser by Jerry Spinelli (6th grade), Coraline by Neil Gaiman (7th grade), and City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau (8th grade).
