This week has been a good week to be a teacher librarian.
Yesterday we ran sessions by an Australian author for our students. He spoke about his life and how he goes about writing his books, as well the creative writing process as a whole. He was both interesting and inspiring for both students and teachers. I wanted to run home and start writing, so I hope it at least shaped the creative instincts of at least one or two of our students!
Today, I ran a skype lesson for our history students with a Nagasaki bombing survivor. He is 86 and shared his memories of that day when he was just a school child in the classroom, as well as the impact it had on his life. It was a very powerful session and a once in a life time experience for our students.
Tomorrow is that last day of term. Two weeks of vacation time to follow!
A very good week indeed.
