Though my tenure at Nathan Hale ended in late May, I've shamefully neglected this blog all summer. However, with school (and work) starting in mere weeks (where did the summer go?!), I thought it best to get myself back into "school mode" and update. What better place to start than with a quick overview of the major units we did in the Nathan Hale Library?
The main focus of the spring was preparing for our author visit by Joseph Bruchac. Thanks to my local public library, I borrowed a stack of his books and introduced them to students in all grades, though K1-3 heard the most stories.
My name is Ms. Bery. I am a PK-8 library media specialist in the Boston area. In addition to being a certified school librarian, I am also certified in instructional technology, and have a strong interest in exploring and integrating technology in new and exciting ways in the classroom.
I am also a 2016 PBS LearningMedia Local Digital Innovator, and a 2015 recipient of the Massachusetts School Library Association's President's Award.
Check out the Sandbox for apps and websites I've found useful in supporting student learning and creativity. I also review children's, middle grade, and young adult books on Instagram.
