The Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center in Roanoke, Virginia was a great location for the annual Virginia Association of School Librarians conference.  The hotel provided the space necessary for all the wonderful sessions and participants.  There were so many presentations offered that I could not attend them all.  The highlights of my trip included the Keynote speakers, Stephen Krashen and Paige Jaeger, both of whom I enjoyed so much that I attended their concurrent sessions.  I was pleased to listen to Neal Shusterman discuss his novels, writing  and favorite authors.  Paul Barron taught valuable Google search methods, and librarians and teachers shared classroom ideas – many of which I will be able to incorporate into my own curriculum.  The first timers breakfast was a treat, as were all the door prizes.  The VAASL Annual Conference is definitely not to be missed!
