TL News Night launches!

If you don’t like how the media depicts educators, realize this: We are the media now. Tell the story the world needs to hear.  Quote from Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher

Last night was the premiere of  TL News Night!  And wow! (Take a look at the Twitter /Google+ comments and comments and reviews.)

The live news show, presented by a superstar team of practitioners, simply rocked!

The mission is to keep the field informed of school library news and highlights.  Last night’s event shared, among so many other things, the critical importance of telling our story to the world.

But, don’t worry if you missed it.  You can view the archive  at your leisure.

Last night’s anchors, representing all grade levels, were:

The plan is for each TL New Night, hosted on the third Monday of the month (unless it is a holiday) to be presented in the following format
