Guest Speaker Coming This Wednesday
This Wednesday, October 25 John Schumacher is coming to talk to all Builta students about some of the best new books for students. He will share book trailers, websites, and activities, and interviews with staff and students. Below is a bio of Mr. Schu.
"John Schumacher (aka Mr. Schu) is a blogger, a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University, and the Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic Book Fairs. John says every day is a giant book party for this teacher-librarian! Library Journal named him "The XtremeLibrarian" for the high level of exertion – and some gears and stunts – that he uses to get kids reading. Instructor Magazine named him a “Cool Teacher” for redefining what it means to be a teacher-librarian. John served on the 2014 Newbery committee, which named Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures as "the most distinguished contribution to children's literature." He daily blogs at MrSchuReads.com and tweets @MrSchuReads."
