14. When organization makes you giddy …

Right now there's a section of my desk at the library that looks like this. It's about 350 new books that my library assistant is entering into the system. I'm super excited about it, because I'm a nerd and I love new books. But several times last week, I had students marvel at all the new titles and tell me they can't wait until they can check them out! It's moments like this that melt my heart. My mother always said that all she wanted in life was to pass down her love of reading to me. And that's the same philosophy I have with my students. If I can just show them how amazing a book can be, then I've done my job! Feel like I'm doing something right. ❤️📚👩🏻‍🏫 #booknerd #bookstagram #booklover #library #librarian #librarianlife #elementarylibrary #elementarylibrarian #newbook #books #booksforchildren #loveofreading #readingislife #readingiscool #readersofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #librarylife #librarybooks #librarylove #librarylover #nerdyteacher #booksarelife #grababook #knowledgeispower #readtolearn #readtogrow
