img_4472I was so thrilled to attend my first VAASL Conference in Norfolk.  I attended the Thursday and Friday sessions.  There were so many options or sessions to choose from.  I enjoyed meeting all the new people.  It was a great opportunity to network with everyone.  The format of the conference was easy to follow and the sessions were informative.  The length of the sessions were perfect.  I appreciate being able to view the documents and presentations of the sessions I could not attend.  I am not a librarian yet, but the conference gave me insight on what to expect.  The atmosphere was friendly and up beat.  I appreciate this as there have been other types of conferences that were dry and boring.  I recommend any educator attending this annual conference.  I will not miss one in the future.
