The Library Voice

The Library Voice


I feel like I have hit the jackpot of sources! I love the statement of this blog!

Shannon McClintock Miller is the following:

“…teacher librarian and technology integration specialist. She was the K-12 district teacher librarian at Van Meter Community School District for 8 years. Shannon now speaks and consults around the world on education, librarianship, technology, social media, and making a difference in education and the lives of others.” The cherries on the top of this jackpot is her location is Denver, CO. my old home state and “Shannon is a member of ALA, AASL, IASL, ILA, ISTE, SIGMS, ASCD,and Iowa Student Learning Institute Board of Directors” and currently I live in IA. I have just become a follower of The Library Blog.

Topics include:

Instagram, Materials for “Endangered Species Day”, “Hot Books For All Our Summer Reading!” with titles such as The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Booked by Kwame Alexander and the Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (one of my absolute favorite authors!).

Shannon also has Pinterest with boards for “Hot Books to Read This Summer.. Little Readers and Elementary, Young Adult Readers and Adult Readers which covers all the readers in my family. I am smitten with this blog!

She was also chosen as a “Movers & Shakers 2014” supports and uses Harmony Projects with Cantata Learning-“…creative, musical and engaging projects to get your students and school community connected globally.”

She also has a “friend and &student blogging partner who writes, “Technology-From a Kid’s Perspective!!! Meridan’s Little Voice which would be a good one to look into also.

Shannon also has Symbaloo Webmixes! As I look over the contents of her Blog Archive I know what I will be on her blog finding all sorts of activities to  do this summer  with my son. This site is overflowing and then some with materials for parents, educators and teacher librarians. I am super glad I checked out this site listed on the top teacher librarian blogs. Her Twitter following is approximately 27, 325 and now I can see why. I am in reading and resource heaven with this blog!

From now on my PLN sources will have to meet the standards of this site. I aspire to become the same quality library professional as Shannon.
