  1. Hi Lyn. Listening to you speak today at the Sutherland Shire TL meeting was inspiring.

  2. Lyn, Thank you for today. I gained so much useful information that I don’t know where to start and am looking forward to some exciting changes in my library. Thank you also for sharing your resources. Lyn

  3. Thanks Lyn for a great day and sharing a wealth of information on your blog!

  4. Thank you Leah, Lyn and Gail, it was lovely meeting with everyone at the SSTL Network Day . All the best with colouring outside the lines in your school. This is a wonderful time to be working as a TL, so many opportunities with the implementation of the new Australian Curriculum, new digital devices and tools. Genius Hour is also a fabuolous way of providing students with individual inquiry learning opportunities – I think this could transform some of the RRF time in primary schools. Please keep me posted on the new initiatives you trial at your school.

  8. Hi,

    Thank you Lyn for your inspiring presentation and the Sutherland Shire TL Network for hosting this PD day. I am inspired by the ideas and feel like I have a purpose again and will be able to not only make some manageable changes to my practice but collect evidence to show what is being done. I felt as though I was treading water before now I think I can swim.



  9. Thanks for your kind words Kylie. I’m pleased to hear that my presentations have helped you refocus and re-energise your efforts as a TL. Start small with collecting your evidence and build on this each term incrementally. Keep me posted on your evidence building!

  10. Hi Judy, I hope my slides help you develop an EBP plan for 2014. Don’t forget to join our EBP group on Facebook
