Here's keeping up with a blog tradition of posting first posts of each month of 2016.
January: Movie Review of #WalangForever
We watch a movie every Metro Manila Film Festival. Last year, our movie of choice is #WalangForever.
February: UP FLIPP's Seminar and Unconference
The format of the seminar lent engagement and more discussion among peers and colleagues. More of this because the method is proactive, collaborative and collegial.
March: Book Trailer for Big Sister
Lampara Books, my publisher, made a neat book trailer for Big Sister, my fourth stand alone picture book.
April: The Hourglass Model of Research
The month of April was research month at the Academy. I blogged about the processes we went through to standardize and formalize research instruction.

This is a post I need to go back to and further explore. Young Adult Library Services in the Philippines is an area of growth and more discussion.
June: A Thesaurus of Philippine Children's Literature
An interview I had for Tericel Tamayao, librarian at Bent International School Manila.

One of the best workshops I attended in recent memory! The insights I gained from attending the NBDB series of workshops last July were important ground work for my practice of the profession.

An infographic I made for our reading guidance program in school.
