|I am so excited to have finally started my first podcast! I have thought about adding podcasting to my blog for at least a year now, and I just decide to jump in with both feet and do it. I plan to post new podcasts on Tuesday mornings. You can follow here, at my podcast host, Podbean, or on iTunes.|
Each of the links below will take you to the blog page for each podcast. The pages include the podcast as well as a list of all books, websites, and other materials referred to in the podcast. I would love to hear your feedback, and reviews in iTunes will really help me spread the word to other school librarians and teachers. Likes and follows are also greatly appreciated!

This is my very first podcast, posted on December 20, 2016. In this episode, I introduce myself and what I plan to do with my podcasts. Then, I describe ten books my students recommend to me to read. Since I am usually the one recommending books, this is a nice switch for my first podcast!
