In addition to being married over 43 years, mother of 2 lovely daughters, and grandmother of 2 healthy boys and 2 gorgeous girls, I am a retired K12 school librarian, district level administrator, and former director of a small public library district. I enjoy my "retirement" as a grandmother, independent educational consultant, and Subject Matter Expert/course designer for Lifelong Education at Desktop (LE@D) http://bit.ly/tM1YDu. I also serve as Co-President of a non-profit preservation organization, Rollins Pass Restoration Association http://moffatroad.org/. I've been active in and served on the boards of state and national school library associations including AASL, CEMA, CAL, and CASL.
I'm too old to leave what I love, so I intend to keep an active mind and life dedicated to the future of our children.
I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.

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
