  • 1. Jazz Up Your Monthly Reports Fran Bullington March 15, 2012South Carolina Association of School Librarians Learning Commons Presentation
  • 2. Basic BeginningsIn the fall of 2006 when I became the lead librarian at Boiling Springs High School, I wanted to continue the sharing of monthly reports that my predecessor had done. Looking back now at the reports I submitted, I am embarrassed! Those reports in no way, shape, or form were conveying how vibrant our library program was.So I began a quest to perfect my reports and share that with you here. Many photographs have been altered because I have not obtained permission to post those students’ pictures.
