Woodlawn Academy Library-- September 2022

Big picture

Welcome Back to the Library!

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I write this note of introduction to you as Woodlawn Academys' new Digital Teacher Librarian. My educational background experience includes 18 years as a teacher and 10 years as a librarian all completed in SAISD. I'm very excited to share my passion of literacy, Makerspace, and technology with all our students and staff. In doing so, I strive to guide each patron to become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher, and ethical user of information. A monthly library newsletter will be sent to all to highlight what is happening in our Eagle Library.

Happy Reading---

Nyree Cavazos

Check out BEANSTACK!!!

Beanstack is a web and mobile app used to track independent reading time, and build a culture of reading in school and at home. Beanstack makes it easier for you to help kids track reading, keep kids motivated to read, and provide feedback and insights into the reading habits at your school. This reading tracker is for both students and staff. Which class, grade level, student, and staff member can track the most minutes for September? You! That's who!
