Do you need a grade to be taken seriously? I don't mean it sarcastically.
I am hopeful that the value of what I (we) do as librarians is reflected in
our students reading a variety of genres with enthusiasm widely and with
consciousness. Every bit of my daily doingness is intended to raise kids
who love to read.  So in answer to your question, no grades.

each thing that comes up, seeing it as not as dreadful as it appears,
discovering that we have the strength to stare it down.”-Eleanor Roosevelt
