Flex Scheduling

I have proposed to my principal the benefits of an open flex library.  Currently I only "teach"k-2, and that is a connect time or resource time for teachers to have their planning.  I feel like all I am doing is checking books in and out and have become an AR station.  The technology is practically closed to me.  This is my second year here and the librarian's aid had taken over the role of "technology" when the old librarian was here.  My predecessor wanted nothing to do with any type of…See More

Last year I hosted the first donation book fair and we did a polar express theme.  I built an entire train in the back of the library and watched Polar express with hot chocolate and cookies.  It was a HUGE hit...This year I am at a total loss of what theme to do.  I wasnt something that isn't overdone, like for instance The Grinch.  The requirements are it has to be G or PG, entertaining for ages k-5, semi short (around 90 mins), Christmasy, and have a book that goes along with it.  Ugh....any…See More

I am finally getting around to catalouging some books that I bought at the end of last year.  I also purchased some really cool hard laminate covers for my paperback books that will get used heavily, and also some plastic covers for the paper covers for the books.  As I was processing them I got to the place where I entered the price and thought for a moment about how much each of those hard laminate covers cost, and how much time I had spent fixing the covers.  So instead of plugging in the…See More

Greetings Cara,

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!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
