I am an education consultant with Denver Public Schools. I am currently working with tech teachers and librarians in professional learning communities and staff development workshops on 21st century learning and information literacy. I am a co-author of Guided Inquiry: Learning in the 21st century with Carol Kuhlthau & Ann Caspari. I also hold a PhD in literacy and have 14 years of teaching experience.

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!
