Joining the class as the first blog-guest this year is Susan Eley, the library media specialist at Hillside Elementary School (PreK to Grade 4) in Mt. Laurel, NJ. Susan is a relatively recent graduate of Indiana University's MLS program and has a few year's of on-the-job experience.
This past summer, she was involved with her school district's Library Media Curriculum Writing Committee as they worked to incorporate the Common Core Standards for language arts. She would be pleased to share with you ideas and insights gained in that process as well as any other issues and activities related to her school library and the work of school librarians in general.

My startup question to all of our blog-guests this year is: "What is the most important issue or activity facing you in your school library this fall?"
