I am currently attending the Building Learning Communities Conference in Boston and someone said the most uplifting thing to me today.  He said:

"I think you knocked the last scales from my eyes regarding the role of librarians in translating the needs of teachers to IT and vice versa. It’s been slowly dawning on me throughout this conference, but your story has finally made it clear – thanks!"

How awesome is that?  Score one for the teacher librarians.
