A friend and colleague has started a new blog. It’s called Paris Reads and will catalog the books she reads throughout the year. She is the librarian at our High School and I am looking forward to her recommendations! You can click on the link in this post or find her in my “Friends” blogroll.

I’d really like to see a community of local bloggers grow. We have varied interests but share a geographical commonality and concern for our community.

Coming up in February is the TCEA Conference in Austin. This will be my second time to go and my first with a laptop so my plan is to blog from the conference. I hope some of my fellow conference attendees will do the same and tag their posts so everyone can find them. I am particularly excited about listening to Keynote speaker Erin Gruwell of “Freedom Writers” fame.
