I'm back in school to become a Teacher-Librarian, much to my surprise! I thought I was done GOING to school. Is being a (personal) book hoarder anathema to being a successful weeder of my school library? If you have experience here, let me know!
Well, when you want to have a really trying time, go to refworks. There is a lot that is good. Just not enough examples for me to completely understand what to do. Oh, well. Off to do read some poems. What kind of poems have you come up with?
Good thinking on your part. I just went to the children's section and pulled out some recent books. There were a lot of the traditional ones (The Owl and the Pussycat) that I liked. Have you started any other projects?
Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
