President’s Welcome Dear Conference Attendees,

As your president, I am honored and delighted to welcome FAMe members, guests and exhibitors to the Hilton Bonnet Creek and to a conference packed with practical information and creative ideas at the 38th Annual FAMe Conference! TeAMWorK was this year’s theme for FAMe and it was abundantly visible as committees worked tirelessly, members around the state coordinated projects for FAMe, and here at the conference in concurrent sessions, school library media specialists and teachers will share their collaboration projects and ideas for students K-12. The Conference Committee, led by Miriam needham and Vic Burke, has made sure you will have a hard time deciding which concurrent session to attend, which author to hear, and which exhibit to visit first. Your professional development and growth “batting average” is definitely going up by Friday afternoon! Don’t miss the General Sessions or the Special Sessions. These carefully selected presentations offer valuable information to get us in peak condition for a winning season. Don Yaeger, our keynote speaker on Thursday, and Stephen Abram, Friday’s keynote speaker, have very different professional backgrounds and have much to offer for both our professional and personal success. on Friday morning there are three special sessions, Post-Game, Game Time and Pre-Game. Post-Game will update attendees on what’s new in technology since last year’s conference. (Some little gadget called the iPad will probably be mentioned!) Game Time’s speaker will offer tips on working with the community, another member of our team. Finally, Pre-Game gets you thinking about Guided Inquiry, next year’s conference theme. Please seek out the FAMe Board (they will have ribbons on their badges), introduce yourself, and let us know how we are doing and how we can better work for our members. We are very excited to share new, exciting, and thought-provoking ideas at this year’s conference and I’m looking forward to seeing and talking with all of TeAM FAMe! — Cecelia Solomon

Librarians know that collaboration is at the heart of good teaching, yet there are numerous stories of colleagues resisting invitations to collaborate. How do we ensure that the librarian is central to the educational goals of a school? Can collaboration be responsive to teachers’ needs without threatening their professional integrity? How do we prove to our reluctant colleagues that we mean it when we say we are there for them as a resource?

Author’s web site: helenketteman.com

Susan Kuklin Susan Kuklin’s family introduced her to art, theater, and books, which opened up many worlds.

Bringing in Your Relief Pitcher: The Public Librarian

Session Strand: Teamwork – Collaboration Session Level: All Platform: Not Applicable In this challenging economy we need to focus on the teamwork aspect of working together for common goals. The same kids that pile into the school library for class wander over to the public library.

The public librarian is busiest after school and would greatly benefit from a heads up on upcoming projects or assignments. Both the public and school librarians can benefit from working together to enrich the student lives and tackle projects together.

I’m an author of children’s books. Although writing is my passion, I haven’t always been an author. It wasn’t until my daughter Maddie was about to turn 11 years old when I realized I wanted to do something really special for her and decided to write her a book. In doing so, I discovered a real love and passion for writing children’s books and have continued my writing. I also illustrate all the pictures in the stories as well. I wouldn’t consider myself a real artist, but I think the kids can relate to the pictures and get a feel for what is happening in the story. Over the past few years I have had the privilege of sharing my books with over 200 schools, libraries and bookstores in Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Nebraska and Massachusetts. I have a lively, interactive 30 minute presentation that is suitable for all 2nd – 5th graders.

The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction, based on interest rather than reading level. Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency. All schools are sent a school participation form in August and registration, activities, and voting are available online for participating schools.
