I started last year... I think... to look back over the school year and reflect on that school year. I'm not much of a reflector but I'm trying to learn.
2016-2017 School Year:
*Only one teacher participated in my Texas 2x2 program. I need to revamp how I do this program. I need to make it easier on teachers.
*We had 2 author Skypes. It was better with smaller groups. I'm going to remember that for next school year.
*We had 1 author visit. When an author tells me that their program really isn't for a lower grade... I'm going to listen next time. Ha!
*I started a (Half) Hour of Code club. My students LOVED it. I had a huge interest. I need to find a way to include more students even though I don't have more technology. Maybe do two different days a week?
*I had 20,626 items circulated this year. I had a drop in magazines so I need promote those better.
*eBooks. I need to promote eBooks better. Maybe add posters in the library and in the front office for parents to see. They just don't get used.
*The Little Free Library is a success. I occasionally have to fill it with new books.
*My Book Clubs read 7 books total this year. I loved adding 2nd grade in mid year. I want to add them at the beginning of the 2017-2018 year.
*LEGO Club is always a hit. I wish I had a bigger wall so I could add more students. They all want to be in LEGO Club.
*I really want to gentrify but the amount of work it takes is keeping me from doing it. I just need to do it and stop thinking about it.
*I want to add more makerspaces in the library. I need to work on funding and what kind of makerspaces to add. I need help running them and keeping them maintained. I also need to decide if they'll be a station in the library or a club that meets once month or more. Or maybe a combination of that.
