American Association of School Librarians Conference 2013
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend my first national conference. My road to the American Association of School Librarians Conference started in June 2013 with a simple tweet. Shawna Ford tweeted that she needed a roommate for #AASL13. Wow! I wanted to go and tweeted her immediately! Did it matter that I only knew her from Twitter? No! She was a librarian, and that meant she would be fabulous. (Although, Shawna's family & friends were concerned I might be a homicidal maniac!) With the support of my awesome principal, I soon had plans to attend my first national conference. Then Carolyn Foote asked if I would like to present in the eLearning Commons. Would I? Try and stop me! I was so excited about AASL would it ever live up to my expectations?
There was even an unconference organized by Joyce Valenza that rocked into the night with everyone learning, collaborating and having their voice heard. The eLearning Commons was a huge success thanks to all the hard work of Carolyn Foote. A big thank you to everyone involved in organizing the American Association of School Librarians Conference held in Hartford, Connecticut.
