Northeast Georgia District Library Media Specialist of the Year

I am excited to announce that I have been chosen as the Northeast Georgia District Library Media Specialist of the Year for 2011-2012.  In October, I will speak on a panel with other incredible district library media specialists of the year at the COMO conference and attend a luncheon where the state media specialist of the year will be announced.  I am honored and humbled to be recognized with this award.  Media specialists around our state and our country are doing critical work with our students, teachers, and families, and I’m proud to be among so many dedicated professionals.  The past 3 years in the David C. Barrow Elementary Media Center have been amazing.  The work that our students have accomplished in collaboration with the media center is inspiring.  Students have published their own work in a variety of formats from print to multiple forms of web 2.0 technology.  This year promises to be another innovative year as projects are already beginning to take shape.  Every year I look forward to what seeds get planted in my work with students and teachers and can’t wait to see how those seeds of ideas sprout and blossom into thriving learning experiences.

    Congratulations, Andy! I am so excited for your award! I have to say, I think they got it right!! 🙂 I really enjoy following your media program and I was truly honored to spend time in your media center last fall. You inspire me to work with the teachers and students at my school in an educational partnership that builds students’ 21st century skills and creates lifelong learners! Thank you for sharing your experiences and your heart with us all.
