“First Day of School”: My Interview with Todd Burleson

Tots to teens to college kids are heading off for their first day of school. Today my own “offspring”, BJORN’S GIFT, has it’s first blog post in the countdown to release day, October 5. Having that post hosted by none other than TODD BURLESON, SLJ’s SCHOOL LIBRARIAN OF THE YEAR is an honor and a joy! Thank you, Todd, for your intriguing questions, kind words about the book and the resources on this site, and for the inspiration you provide in all you do.


Todd Burleson, school librarian, media specialist, and wonder-grower at Hubbard Woods Elementary School in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

You can learn more about Todd, (and I urge you to do so) by reading his recent “HOW DID I GET HERE?” post  (here) following the announcement of his award.

If you want to read more of what our interview/conversation was about, you can find it on the GROGBlog post, here.

Thank you, Todd (and your blog-mates) for your warm welcome and exciting start to this countdown. 

And please stay tuned for more in the coming days!

  1. How exciting Sandy for comments from School Librarian of the Year. He knows a good book when he sees it and an exciting author!!

    • Thanks, Gerri. Todd’s a great guy who does remarkable things with his school and beyond. How he even finds time to write a blog is beyond me, but I’m very grateful to join him on this post.
