AASL Social Media Superstar Finalists Announced!

AASL has launched a brand new recognition program called the Social Media Superstars.

Librarians were nominated by their peers over the last several weeks and today the Social Media Recognition Task Force announced the finalists in seven categories including....
And I am honored and excited to be part of the three that were nominated for the Tech Troubadour, along with my colleagues and friends Heather Moorefield-Lang and Krista Welz.

You can read more about the Tech Troubadour category here.

This award recognizes a librarian who uses one or more social media platforms to share technology expertise of benefit to school libraries and school librarians and their work.  

To look at this list of these amazing individuals and think about how they have influenced me as a teacher librarian and professional is humbling and inspiring.  We are lucky to belong to a profession that not only teaches, surprises and connects with us everyday, but also embraces and lifts us up in such celebrations.

According to the AASL Social Media Superstar page....

Now through April 14, members of the school library community and the public are invited to post endorsements of their personal superstar by leaving a comment of each category's post.  After April 14, the Social Media Recognition Task Force will consider the endorsements and the original nomination and select an overall Superstar for each category.  Superstars will be announced during a live webcast on Thursday, April 27 at 6:00pm CST.  

Be sure to visit each of the seven hyperlinked category postings to read information about all of the finalists and get links to their social media platforms.  You will no doubt want to follow those you aren't already.  

We want to hear from you!  Comment and share how these Superstar finalists have helped you improve and enhance your practice.

Congratulations again to all of the others who have been nominated.  And friends, please know that you are all superstars to me!  Each and every one of you have inspired my practice and enhanced my life. 

Thank you for that!
