101 Ways to Make Your Child Feel Special by Vicki Lansky .This is a simple hand book with ideas to build your child’s self confidence. For example, if your child arrives home first, leave a message on your answering machine saying “Hi Honey, welcome home. I left a surprise snack in the fridge.” Or remember those photo booths in the mall? Next time you pass one take a moment to capture some funny-face photos together.

Teacher Librarians: Supporting Student Learning
Library programs with the teacher librarian occur on odd number days in the school cycle.
" A Teacher Librarian plays three critical roles in the learning community: teacher, information specialist and administrator. In each of these roles they empower students and teachers to meet higher standards."
Collaborative planning and teaching (CPT) is an instructional model whereby the teacher librarian and the teachers are collaborative partners in the planning of the instructional process, in the use of resources and in the evaluation of teaching and learning outcomes. We employ resource based inquiry approaches. With the increasing use of a wide range of learning resources, students are nurtured with the mastery of information skills and strategies.
As a result, the partners provide students with the opportunities to attain information literacy, and the students are empowered as independent learners with lifelong learning skills.
