May31

My bright idea for shelving books at the end of the year, and it was something the 5th graders could help me with. :)

One of the funniest and strangest things that happened this year was the hiding of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. Up to 20 at a time. We found them everywhere. Hidden in the non-fiction section behind other books. Hidden in tubs that contained class sets. Hidden with the audiobooks. We aren’t exactly sure who was hiding them but we have our suspicions, and we don’t exactly know why they were hiding them but it did make for some comic relief.

…SNAPSHOT OF OUR LAST DAYS

2014-05-07 08.33.14 This was the view on Wednesday 2 days before the library was to close it’s doors for the year. The line was out the door which was pretty much the norm all year long. I can only imagine what it will look like next year.

Congratulations to Arturo Tovar for being this years first place winner of our ‘Many Important Hats Contest”. How creative is this hat? It’s like Cat in the Hat met Wicked met a superhero! Very cool.

The Library Doors Video

April21

When author Toni Buzzeo was looking for someone to create a video to go along with her book The Library Doors, I knew that was something our kids would love to do. I enlisted the help of our talented music teacher, Kim Keller and her choir. I then contacted our ITV department and Susan Carlson was excited to help. Everyone did a great job in making this project come to fruition and Toni put it up on her website just in time for National Library Week.

Literature Fair

December20

R.C. Centeno Elementary hosted its 1st Annual Reading Fair December 17, 2013. The purpose of the Reading Fair is to provide each student with an opportunity to share his/her favorite fictional story and demonstrate his/her knowledge of reading through a storyboard display. The goal of the Reading Fair is to encourage, promote, and enhance the reading experience across grade levels. Participation in the Reading Fair process will ultimately allow each student to have a creative and positive experience with reading that will develop into a lifelong love of reading.

This is a picture of me my first year in the library, which was (06-07). My daughter drew it so if you look closely there are a couple of signs that say “MOM”, and if you look real close I’m wearing a badge that says Centeno Librarian. The question marks in the background and the expression on my face allude to a sense of confusion, aptly so, it was my first year and it was a little overwhelming. Now it’s my fifth year and I’ve decided to keep this anime likeness because one; I’ve grown so found of it, two, the job is still overwhelming, and three, now that I’m in the “Lucha Libro”, like El Santo, I have to conceal my true identity.

This will be my 11th year in education. I spent my first year teaching 5th grade reading then made the move to a self-contained 3rd grade taksroom, I mean classroom. Now that I’m in the library I think I have found my calling. I think I was meant to be “La Bibliotecaria”. I’ve always loved reading children’s books and YA literature and I was one of those kids who always raised their hand to read aloud in class. Now I get to do it for a living and in front of a captive audience! Plus, I actually get to work with people I like – kids.

Interests: books, cats, fashion, exercise

My blog is written for you - the student who loves to read, is in search of a new book or just loves to see the words of their own voice. You can comment on the "must reads" or just lurk and read what your friends, other students and even authors have to say, but most of all enjoy!
