Hi Kristen,
So sorry to just e getting back to you now. I haven't checked my page in a while. I hope your summer is going well. My mom just left after an 11 day visit. We did a lot of exploring the state, and we had a blast. My library is undergoing some exciting changes right now. We are totally remaking it to be a true 21st-century library media center- tables and shelving on movable casters, flexible spaces, Barnes and Noble- like displays, lots of fabulous lounge furniture. I am very excited!! As for transitioning in at the end of the school year- it was challenging (teachers are tired and busy), but it was great to be able to step in a feel the school out and meet teachers, students, and parents. I will feel more comfortable now this year jumping right in and working with everyone.
Are you still in the CDL? I miss Ruth a lot. It was so fun to work there and to learn from her. When so you graduate? I'm glad you are revved up about becoming a librarian- it really is a great field, and there are opportunities out there to get into a supportive, well-funded school. Don't settle for less than you deserve. I almost did, and I know now that I would have regretted it!
I hope you are enjoying your summer, and write back when you get a chance! I'll change my settings to be notified when I get a comment, so I won't take another 2 months to answer you next message!
Take care, and tell everyone I say hi!

Jen

Greetings Kristen,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
