I work in a one school rural district in SW Colorado as the District/middle/high school librarian. I also teach two yearbook/newspaper classes and 8th grade technology. In my free time I enjoy outdoor actitities such as soccer, snowboarding, dirt biking and boating.
Hi Carrie --Welcome to our Colorado school librarians group! Sounds like you have a big job! I am also a district coordinator - but not directly responsible for day to day programs/operations at any of the individual schools.
Busy busy busy... and somehow, not missing the schoolwork at all! I'm really enjoying the job right now. I'm taking on more and more, too, although no teaching classes on a regular basis as of yet, thank goodness. That is still very much an epidemic in this district.
We should get some of the other old classmates on here!
Laura's presentation was really good-- I've got the handouts, so I'll send them over to you. I also picked up good info at the Poetry Slam 101 and Anime workshops that I hope to use, but other than that... a little disappointing for the school librarians once again.

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.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair email@example.com
