So glad to have you aboard! I'm not a media specialist, but the one at my school is amazing. She'll do book talks at our staff meeting introducing the new materials available to us. She asks teachers for recommendations on what books to purchase that will support our curriculums. She gets the kids hooked onto different series by carefully choosing her read-alouds each library class. As a classroom teacher, I much prefer that the students are excited about the actual books rather than rewards (I'm all about the intrinsic motivation!)

Hope this is helpful! And hope to see you around pro teacher a lot- it's the best place on the internet! (Be sure to visit the Lounge- it's a hoot!)
