Karen, My husband grew up in Plainview; although I was raised in the Albany, NY area, I graduated from Palmer Graduate Library School at C.W. Post. Next weekend, we're attending a family wedding at the Vineyard in (near?) Riverhead. VERY small world!
How wonderful that you've published a book - and on such a timely topic. My creativity, such as it it, is expressed in blog comments. Not sure if I have the discipline for an entire book: good for you!
Although I'm past the "normal" retirement age for teachers, because I came late to this career, I'm still working at the advanced age of 60. Love my job, but I have others things I'd like to be doing while I'm still mobile.
My district is Fort Ann, not far from the Vermont border. My home is in Queensbury, NY, located north of Saratoga and just south of Lake George. Gorgeous country for most of the year, but I yearn for warmer climes in the winter. For four years in a row, my husband and I have spent Easter week in Key West (see my photos for a few glimpses of Paradise!)
Nice to "meet" you - if you don't mind, I'll invite you to be my cyper buddy.
Hi Karen, I am a high school librarian from the Denver metro area. Congrats on your book! How exciting. I just started working on a YA novel, I am not a writer but had an idea and maybe something will come of it. It will be one of my summer projects. Any advice?
Hi, Karen--I sure would like a copy of your book! I am deep into AASL appointments (want one? even a virtual one?) and my favorite food is cookies...not a good combination, I'm afraid...I worry a lot about childhood obesity. Both of my parents had diabetes with final illnesses and it complicated treatment so much...Thanks for the offer! Sara J

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.
