The Beginnings of a New Library--ART infused!!!

“Art is the window to man's soul. Without it, he would never be able to see beyond his immediate world; nor could the world see the man within.” Claudia Lady Bird Johnson

Yes Lady Bird... you have tweeted and resonated with this soul of a new Media & Art Integration Specialist!! I have been blessed with my dream position. I will be taking over a library that hasn't been operating for the past 3-4 years. The teachers ran it on a voluntary basis themselves. Is that amazing or what? Unfortunately, there's lots of work to do, as new books and inventory hasn't been completed since 1999. Our school is so fortunate that our new administration believes in the power of READING...Woohooo!!!
So come along with me, as I journey thru reviving a lost library, and feeding the flames for young folks souls with not only the love of a wonderful book thru the hidden power of self inspired reading, but also a Visual Journey where I hope to inspire students daily to see the world thru a visual artist's eyes.

Thru my heART,
