Author Visit - October, 2011

Author Laura Elliott will be presenting at the AASL Conference in October and is interested in possibly arranging some visits with schools when she is here in Minnesota.  In her email she says, "In terms of grade level, I write picture-books through YA historical novels, so I speak to all ages in school visits. (picture books k-2, an American Revolution novel for grades 3-5; and my other novels 6th and up) Most typically, I am asked for middle school/high school." Her presentation is a panel…See More

Good Communicators are a Valuable Resource!

I recently realized an interesting tidbit about tech communication in Minnesota. ISTE has Special Interest Groups. Those groups have an officer called Communication chair. And three of those officers are from Minnesota - three that I know of at least. One is Lisa Sjogren, for SIGilt (innovative learning technologies). She…

Our challenge and our opporunity

An interesting discussion has been taking place regarding the requirements for the media specialist in a building. At this time in Minnesota, schools are not required to have a licensed media specialist and there is not requirement for media center staffing. It is up to the administrators how they chose to staff their media centers. They can choose to staff with a licensed media specialist, a teacher who likes books, teachers during their prep times, paras, or not at all. Whether or not that… Continue

After the Fall Conference

I am sorting through the notes, advertisements and business cards, and memories of the 2009 MEMO conference which took place in Rochester. It would be difficult to select a favorite session or most valuable opportunity as there were so many. The weather was dreary but that inside the excitement of the event was obvious. And already the ideas are beginning for next year’s conference.



With Mary Mehsikomer as a conference chair and Gina Light and Leah Larson as program chairs,… Continue

Thank you Dawn, I am really looking forward to getting to know you and other MEMO members. I'd love to attend the fall conference, also. Have a great day! Summer come soon.

Wow! You are going to the Spanish immersion school! You're right; I'm jealous :) It will be good to see you and get the details soon -- and after the end-of-year craziness is behind us.

Hi Dawn,

I wish I could go to the Summer Leadership Conference, but I will be on vacation in AK. I am looking for some books during my trip. I wrote up a post about it here: http://memotech.ning.com/forum/topics/five-recommended-readings

Yes Dawn that was me. The Faribault District has eliminated secondary librarians and is keeping the media center open with paras.

Hi Dawn - for some reason I never saw your comment until now. Here's a new picture from last years Symphonic Rock concert with the Anoka High School orchestra, choir and staff band. It is a fundraiser for needy students and their families. We are going to do another one this April 14th & 15th.
