  1. Allison Zmuda gave a riveting talk on the Power of the Principal with school libraries. I was so glad principals were the room hearing how a school library should support the building and how we should be held accountable regarding our performance. Her message needs to be heard by every principal AND school librarian. We need to be held accountable our observations/evaluations should be rigorous yet for school librarians. In many schools librarians are evaluated using the teacher evaluation and that sells us short. Allison made my principal think and she asked, during lunch, if the observation forms were appropriate for librarians and we said no. Because we, principal & librarian, were hearing Allison together the door of opportunity opened and next year we will have a librarian evaluation. Another door opened for us at CAL and that was the door of appreciation. Dr. Smith explained why she values the librarian and the library at Cherry Creek High School and why teacher-librarians are a priority for her. Thank you to Nance Nassar and Jody Howard for writing the grant to honor principals and teacher-librarians!
