Three Girls, Three Books, Three Very Different Lives

Adelina and Violetta have the strong bond of sisterhood, but their lives couldn't be any different.  After being struck down by the blood fever, Adelina was became a malfetto, having the marks associated with them.  Adelina's father knew the only thing he could do with his ugly marked daughter was to sell her either for the powers some malfettos were known for, or sell her to get rid of her.
  
And the night he decided upon her price changed Adelina's life...

So, what did I learn at TCEA?
TCEA is always a great conference to go to when you want to fill your head, knowledge, and devices with educational technology in action.  From apps to Google everything; tools to pedagogy and everything in between, I absorbed as much as possible, hoping it...

Story

My passion is my job....I'm so lucky!
Introduction
I've been here and there, lived through life's experiences, and am thoroughly enjoying where it has put me...in a small town in the country with two dogs, a beautiful daughter and an amazing husband.  I enjoy working hard, but enjoy playing hard as well. 
I consider myself a librarian with a twist of technology.  In today's society, our job is to maintain balance between print and technology.  You can find me on Twitter, Pinterest, Scoop.it, Youtube and Schooltube.  If I'm not online, I'll be behind a book feeding my reading addiction :)
 
Bragging rights
I was selected as one of five librarians for the SLJ/Cengage Emerging Leaders, 2010 and received the TCEA Media Specialist award of the year for the state of Texas in 2011. I've presented throughout the state of Texas, conducting technology and media workshops for librarians and teachers. I've also been asked to present at several state librarian conferences (Utah, 2011) and North Dakota, 2013) and presented to public librarians in Arizona (2012), Chicago (2013)and school librarians in California (2013). I was also honored to be asked by Dr. Joni Bodart to be a guest speaker about creating book trailers for her library course at San Jose State University. I'm actively involved in Texas Library Association, one of the largest library associations in the country. I've served on the TAYSHAS comittee to select best YA books for the state; served as chair of Texas Association of School Librarians, the largest division of TLA, and now serve as part of TLA's communications committee and am currently a candidate for the executive board of TLA.. I have presented on local, district, regional, state, and national levels bringing book trailer creation to the forefront of librarian tools for readers of all ages, how to integrate webtools, advocacy, and best YA novels. I've been published in ALA's KnowledgeQuest and in Library Media Connections. I'm a listserv junkie and love scouting and using new technology as well as finding amazing books for YA. I collaborate and interact with librarians across the country, and know we are all in this together, big or small :)
