About meI teach first grade and I work with teens. I run a galley group and I am very close to having my library/media specialist masters. One day I may even decide to work as a high school librarian. My first crop of first graders will enter high school this fall (2007); I like the idea of being around to make sure that they still are reading. I review YA literature for the Michigan Reading Journal. I taught a graduate YA lit class for GVSU. I have served on the Printz award committee, BBYA, the Teen Read work group. I will also be on the 2009 Caldecott Committee (for books published in 2008). I have a website: http://web.mac.com/edspicer/iWeb/spicyreads/Welcome.html and www.spicyreads.org (which is the same website, but a bit slower on the updating).
About my libraryEventually, I will have all of the books sent to me for BBYA, Caldecott, etc. entered here. The tags are used to show how I have distributed the books.
