Collaboration efforts

How can I help?

Mrs. Killingsworth attends weekly meeting with the classroom teachers in an effort to stay on top of the happenings in the classroom and supplement the classroom lessons in the library. She hosts a book faire once per year. She participates in school events such as family fun night, literacy night, and math night. She periodically rewards her students for good library behavior and/or reading at home with time in her "library bubble"- a large bubble constructed from box fans, black tarp, and duct tape.
