I'm back in school to become a Teacher-Librarian, much to my surprise! I thought I was done GOING to school. Is being a (personal) book hoarder anathema to being a successful weeder of my school library? If you have experience here, let me know!

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.
If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
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.
Good thinking on your part. I just went to the children's section and pulled out some recent books. There were a lot of the traditional ones (The Owl and the Pussycat) that I liked. Have you started any other projects?
Well, when you want to have a really trying time, go to refworks. There is a lot that is good. Just not enough examples for me to completely understand what to do. Oh, well. Off to do read some poems. What kind of poems have you come up with?
