Expect more

(SlideRocket has discontinued its service)

At least once a year, I have the opportunity to meet with the SCSD Leadership Team. This year, I wanted to incorporate some of the concepts from EXPECT MORE by David Lankes, a book  that has influenced me and others (including my colleague, Buffy Hamilton). It dovetailed nicely with the discussions being  held by the Task Force for School Libraries in Iowa, a group formed by the Department of Education Director, Jason Glass. Our superintendent, Sam Miller is a member of the task force and we've talked numerous times about my role in our district and the role of teacher librarians in our state. 

After sharing these slides and talking about how the SCSD library program is working to live up to the vision, the team had several excellent suggestions for getting the word out and sharing the message with staff, students and community. 

I really appreciate their support and insight and the chance to review and dream a little bit.
