Greetings Polly, 

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

I just tried your xml for Burnt Hills on my iGoogle page. Sorry for the delay, but I have to admit it took me a minute or two or ten to figure how to add an RSS feed to the page, but I learned something new. Thanks! I love it!
p.s. I tried Jing at home and my network connections at work can't support the speed necessary to load. A bummer since I do so much at home. My tech support bought Camtasia and SnagIt from the Jing people and loaded it on my machine at work. Love it. Have made a movie for my book group on how to download our book for January from NetLibrary. So cool.

Polly, I just scanned your site - what a collection of resources! Sorry I won't be attending the workshop...maybe next year.
One area I'm still investigating is authentic assessment. I'd like my class to be as paperless as possible, with grades dependent on participation (a minimum number of blog entries?) and projects.
Any suggestions?

Thank You! I'm trying to follow Richardson's guidelines for an effective blog and the hardest component to achieve is interaction: there are so many bloggers now, that just getting read is difficult, let alone eliciting a comment or - bliss - beginning a dialog.
Did you know that Joyce Valenza is coming to speak to members of our School Library System next Fall? Can't wait to hear her (the virtual world is wonderful, but I'm an old-fashioned girl who also likes real time, real place contact.)

Polly, I'm the SLMS at Fort Ann, in the WSWHE BOCES. I've enjoyed attending some of your workshops and hope to be out and about more next school year.
Take a look at my blog and leave a comment, if you're so inclined. Have a glorious Fourth!
