3rd grade teacher?

So many times as a media specialist, I have reflected about my effectiveness as I create little Information Specialists. Today, I had a great experience as I started the day by introducing the OPAC lesson — or should I say review — of Duval called Destiny. The students were listening intently when one student, Alex, raised his hand and asked me if I wanted him to finish the lesson. Of course, I humbly sat down and said, “why of course, I would love for you to share with the class how to search for a book”. He began by saying, “I remember every word that Ms. KK taught me. Let’s begin.”

He walked up to the laptop attached to the projector and moved the curser to the address bar and typed….destiny.duvalschools.org. The rest was history as he gently guided his fellow students through a perfect book search. Can it get any better than this?

    It doesn’t get any better than this! Kudos to him for teaching but more kudos for YOU for letting him take over and showcase his knowledge. You are the greatest!

    I am constantly amazed at what students remember. Sometimes it seems like they haven’t heard a word we’ve said and suddenly they are repeating every word that has come out of our mouths!

  5. You ARE the Queen of Books! It is obvious to anyone who has seen you in action…you are impacting kids with your work. Love ya!
