What in particular did you like?
I really enjoyed being part of the library community at Doherty. It's really interesting to see all of the tasks that are thrown at librarians at a high school. I had no idea the breadth of opportunities and requirements that LTEs in D-11 have to deal with.
What were some successful activities you did?
It's interesting that one of the things that I enjoyed doing best was going around and updating several computers to XP Service Pack 3. It was great learning experience about what LTEs have to do that has nothing to do with the library, per se. It also made me feel pretty important to go around to someone's computer and work on it. If the person who uses the computer walked in, they immediately gave me tons of respect since I was doing something to their machine that they had no idea how to do themselves. It was very empowering.
What do you wonder about now....
I just wonder if high school is where I really want to be in a library setting. After having done an Elementary Field experience, I definitely felt more appreciated by the elementary staff and students that I worked with. I also wonder if I'm going to have to move outside of the Colorado Springs area to find a media specialist position, or at least out of D-11.
