The calendar year started with an extraordinary number of snow days, which meant virtually no full-weeks of work. Nice, eh? All I had to do was stay at home and read.
Then the weather cleared up and it was time to return to the adult world of work. And of course, that also meant that obligations I’d been dodging started to say “hey! over here! remember me?” Not to mention a few new ones that are now jumping up and down and demanding attention. What obligations and projects, you ask? Of course there are the presentations I’m working on. And then there are:
- Presenting at the SWBOCES Conference on April 1
- Co-editing the May/June issue of Knowledge Quest (topic? the National Conference in October)
- Revamping the “Burning Down the House” presentation before I present at the Disaster Preparation pre-conference in NOLA
- Blogging on Gatekeepers Post
- Serving on the SLJ Book App committee (and look at the intimidating company I’ll be keeping!)
- Updating the Research Resources, March is, Database and Hot Topics LibGuides
- Playing the QR codes and figuring out how to make them work best in my library (InfoWitch is an enormous inspiration)
- Starting to get ready for major research papers in 9, 10 and 11th grade History
I’m getting tired just thinking about it all. Luckily, we’re starting our Review and Exam Weeks, so I’ll have some time in which to figure out the last three.
