This is my new favorite presentation because listening to Nikki is like having your best friend come over and share what she is excited about and her ideas were inspirational, especially to this wanna be school librarian!

Nikki is a GREAT presenter! She gives a lot of information and doesn't waste time talking about herself even though there is a LOT she could brag about! When I take the time to do a webinar I was the facts, ma'am... just the facts... and as many as I can get! I usually listen and write down one or two things. I wrote a LOT of ideas because when she said something it would spark an idea for me to try. Again, it makes me determined that our media specialists need to meet to collaborate. Perhaps we'll start with a few Google Hangouts and go from there... THANKS NIKKI!!!

Nikki: You presented so many good ideas. Your comments on blogging really struck home. I have not blogged for the reasons that you mentioned. I never realized what an important tool it could be as self reflection and evaluation. Now I will have to learn more about blogging and "stick my toe in the water". Thanks for the great webinar.
