Micki Nevett


This has been a really tough week. My good friend Micki Nevett, Westmere Elementary librarian, died on Monday. She was my professor for the administration of school library media programs- she was the kindest and smartest teacher. Here is the news from her school http://www.guilderlandschools.org/westmere/Westhome.htm


So I'm freaking out- Micki was the best librarian EVER. She was so awesome. I always told her she was my librarian-fairy-godmother- I call her my librarymom too :)

I don't know what to do without her!

I am librarymomless :(

I may at some juncture accept applications for a new librarymom, I suppose- though no one can replace Micki. I'm a good librarykid- I give cookies and knitted goods.

I miss my Micki :(


Here are some lyrics to Sister Winter by Sufjan Stevens:

Oh my friends I've

Begun to worry right

Where I should be grateful

I should be satisfied

Oh my heart I

Would clap and dance in place

With my friends I have so

Much pleasure to embrace

But my heart is

Returned to sister winter

My first snow day


Oh hooray! It is a snow day! My first REAL snow day of my professional career! I am so excited! I am going to wrap presents, and finish knitting things, and work on school work too... but from HOME! Oh happy day!

To the left are images from "Snowflake Bentley" the first dude to photograph snowflakes :) Working on a project with some snazzy 5th graders to present at morning program on Thursday, woohoo!
