Yesterday, I had the opportunity to teach with a 7th grade English teacher at Oro Site High School, Ma'am Burmas. Since it was the first week of classes, she was doing activities so she could get to know the students and they could get to know each other (remember, there are 45-55 students in each class, so that is a lot to get to know!). The 7th grade students loved the bookmarks made by the Genesee students, and Ma'am Burmas decided to have her students do the same thing. I also brought wristbands and I Love NY stickers to hand out to the students. In another class, we discussed the inspirational quotes made by Genesee 5th grade students and Oro Site students shared some of their favorite quotes. One I like is "Be nice to your mother because you will never have another." Comment on this post with one of your favorite quotes!
In the afternoon, Mrs. G and I were part of the 7th grade orientation program. Since the 7th grade students were new to the High School, an orientation was held for them and their parents so they could meet the staff and learn the rules of the school.

I am a school librarian at Genesee Elementary School in Auburn, NY where I try to inspire students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and adventurers! In June, I am traveling to the Philippines with a group of amazing teachers from around the country as part of a Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellowship. I hope you'll join me on my journey!
