Hello!! Would any of you happen to know of a program for teaching in Japan for a summer or a semester? Like a sabbatical kind of program? I've looked into the Fullbright program for 2012-2013, and Japan isn't one of the countries on the list for that year, so that's out. I hope there are other programs I might explore. I'd appreciate any recommendations, or even contact info for people I could contact. Thanks so much!!See More

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!
