What's in a Name?

People have asked me, "Why Charlotte?" in the name of this blog?  My answer: I wanted the name to constantly remind me of the child-like excitement I felt as I learned about the newest technologies at the 14th Annual American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Conference held in Charlotte, North Carolina, in November of 2009.

Today, I've decided to change the name of this blog to MauiLibrarian2 in Olinda, where every day I feel that same excitement as we experiment using new technologies in our classrooms.

Today is also the Maui Independent School Organization (MISO) Conference, to be hosted by my school. I'll be learning from teachers throughout the island and I'll also be presenting with my colleagues Miss Davis and Mr. Turbeville. Our workshop is called "Speed Apping: Mobile Devices in the Classroom".  I'm very excited; it's the perfect day to change the name of my blog.

... More about the conference and our presentation in my next post.
