Today's #Kidlit Sticker (2015-2016 School Year Gallery)

The 2015-2016 school year is going to be filled with many changes and exciting adventures. 

1. I am no longer the teacher-librarian at Brook Forest Elementary School. 

2. I will miss seeing my students every day, but I am honored and excited to serve as the Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic Book Fairs. This new role will allow me to work with students, teachers, and librarians around the country. 

3. I am teaching Materials for Children (eCollege course) for Rutgers University. w00t! w00t! 

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that every school day I wear a different #kidlit sticker close to my heart. There is no reason for me to give up this tradition, right? Absolutely not! 

Once the sticker is created, printed, and attached to my body, I will add it to this blog entry. Sound good? Perfect!
