First Graders Talk about Pat’s Books
2. What do you enjoy about the work?
MR: I enjoy being in the library because I work with the whole student body! I enjoy watching the students grow from kindergarten to fifth grade: to watch their likes and dislikes change as well as their personalities. It is especially momentous when a former student who is now in high school or older comes by and says, “I remember when you used to ….”. That lets me know I have made a small impact on their lives. I also get to work with the entire faculty on various projects.
3. How do you select the books?
MR: Books are selected through reviews, student/teacher interest and award-winning books.
4. Do you think of yourself as creative?
MR: I wouldn’t say I am creative at all. Sometimes I have a really good idea for a project or bulletin board or even for a lesson, but overall I don’t consider myself creative.
5. Do you celebrate Día at your library? If not, will you next year? If yes, how do you plan and what happens?
MR: Honestly, I promote Día because our city hosts a big fair, but in the library I haven’t done all that much. We usually get an email with all the info about it with a printable flyer that I post outside the library. It usually falls so close to state testing that it gets put on the back burner at my library. I will try to be a better advocate next year.
