Cybils 2010


Teachers are an odd breed. We fill our plates and when we see something new and exciting we say "Wow, now I can fill my dessert plate!" That's what it is like being a First Round Cybils Judge. Even better is the fact that this year I came back for seconds. I am a judge on the Middle Grade Panel. It is a strange category because middle grade is an odd group. the range is beginning third graders to just shy of YA. Talk about a range. I have read some wonderful books so far. Stay tuned for updates.

You nailed it on the head with your post. My friends at school looked at me and asked, "Are you nuts?" I teach a club 2 days after school and tutor for reading 2 days after school and will soon start working Saturdays for State testing prep. Each of these is another opportunity to tell kids about the wonderful books that are out there. I feel like you, "This is just dessert".
