Biggest Dream...Vienna, Austria!

I've always wanted to live in Vienna, Austria ! Perhaps it's because of my classical music love, cello expertise (long ago) or my obsession with Mozart (I have a secret tied to him AND Beethoven !) but my dream job would be to be a part of a library there. Live in the country, absorb the culture and otherwise BE HAPPY! I don't know the first thing about obtaining employment there, but I'm speaking out to Fate and willing it to myself. GOOD FORTUNE is a powerful tool! Enjoy these wonderful pictures. Don't forget to see the links below the pictures! Like their Facebook page! The Lonely Planet has some GREAT information about Vienna and scheduling a visit. Click here . This video link below offers a quick suggestion of places to visit in Vienna! Vienna Video

Libraries and Colleges

When deciding where to go to college consider reviewing their library. Believe it or not, many prospective students and their families examine the library as a factor to consider when choosing their post-secondary tutelage! See this article from US News, here .

Would you rather???

This is a fine idea to use to start discussions and get to know how your students think. It could be a great background building activity for persuasive thinking and supporting your argument with a CONVINCING rationale. I found it on Pinterest , so take a look for yourself: You can also pair it with a "Table Text" to get students writing and discussing within their pods/groups! See this link from my pinterest:
