AZ School Librarian

Reflections on the events and happenings of a new librarian, veteran teacher, and soon to retire educator in Arizona. I've been a music teacher, computer lab teacher (VIC 20, Apple IIe, C-64, MacPlus, and PC), curriculum integration specialist, and am about to add Library Media Specialist to the list. My interests include photography, 4 wheeling (in a Jeep Unlimited), hiking, technology, and renovating my house.

Geocaching at NECC



What to say? I volunteered a couple of hours to man the table here at NECC. I know that I have fun with this activity, lots of folks seems to wander by, aska few questions, and keep on wandering. A few walk away when they hear that it involves walking for a little over an hour - and even fewer sign up totake the plunge.

I have really enjoyed my forays into geocaching - but I don't think that its something for everyone!

They've set up a series of 9 caches around the conference area - people check out a GPSr that's preset with the coordinates of the caches, and they get a map, a set of clues, help on the first two caches. Then they are turned loose to go find the rest. Most come back with a pocketful of goodies, a tired but victorious look on their face.

Here's a few photos of the leaders (BTW - Happy Birthday Sandy!)
