I am the library media specialist in a small K-8 public school in Somerville, Massachusetts. My passions (besides books) are Red Sox baseball and spending time at Cape Cod! I got my MLS from Simmons College in Boston in 2007 but have worked in the library field for almost 20 years.
I'll definitely stop by. I'm living in Davis Square now, so I'll be close. I'm doing one practicum at Cambridge Rindge and Latin and the other at Amigos/MLK and Taking Management at the same time. I'm so excited (albeit a little nervous). I still have yet to hear who will be advising these for me. What was the large scale project you did for the practica? I have yet to figure out what I'm going to do....
Hi!! I just had a job interview for a position called "library assistant" but which was actually for an elementary school librarian. I think it was called "assistant" because it was both a temporary and a part-time postion, but there was nothing "assistant"-y about it. Anyway, I didn't get it, and I'm mad. There was only *one* other person who applied, too.
Hello kim! I am very anxious and excited to hear how your new job in Somerville is going! Is it going okay so far? Is the commute killing you yet? I hope you are getting to see some of my old kiddos - I miss them...
Hi Kim! Thanks for writing me. Everything is going the same as it always has - which is partly okay, and partly not okay. But whatever - that's life! I hope all is well with you! Tell joyce I said hi (or maybe I should just email her :) Hope you're having a great summer! ~melissa

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.
