For me, I'm always grateful to get to this point of the year...not because it's approaching the final quarter, but because they're finally able to run the show themselves for the next month and half. At this point, students have their own independent projects and are simply carrying them out to see where they go. Some are destined to make something great...others are just happy to be here in the final days...but for all, they have a sense of ownership that is sometimes lacking the rest of the year.
For today, our librarian is calling the shots, but from now until April, it's all projects, all the time. Let's see what they've got left.
