Like the Butterfly Emerges From the Cocoon... too shall I emerge as a leader.  An ALA 2011 Emerging Leader, that is.

I am so honored to not only have been selected as a member of ALA's 2011 class of Emerging Leaders, but also to be sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians*!

I can't wait to head to San Diego in January for the ALA Mid-Winter Meeting to meet my classmates and get down to work on our projects.  I'm not entirely sure what to expect, but am eager to see what lies around the bend.  I'm also thrilled that I'll be able to be in the room when the 2011 Youth Media Awards are announced, and will hopefully be able to do some live blogging.

For any readers who just might happen to be fellow Emerging Leaders, congratulations!  And for any past Emerging Leaders, what can I expect?

*As a librarian at an independent school who works with middle schoolers, I sometimes feel like my job puts me somewhere between your average YALSA and AASL affiliated librarian, and it's so so good to feel the AASL love!
