I'm a teacher librarian at a large secondary school (1700 students). My interests lie with graphic novels, Web2.0 and action research. I'm searching for the point where these interests intersect, but this point keeps moving!! Just started blogging this year with Fully Booked - our library blog.

Greetings Di,

 

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

If you have a gmail account we could easily share a Google DOC. I'd be happy to help you learn if needed. My gmail is MrMLibrarian@gmail.com.

I look forward to networking with you!

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Di,
I love graphic novels too, and am always challenged to find ones appropriate for my k-8 library. If you have any recommendations for the younger kids, I'd love to hear them.

Welcome, Di! You know you had a few unoccupied minutes to fill. Try the podcast reviews at the Brookline School for starters: http://www.runkle.org/Podcasts/index.html
(Thanks to Joyce). [can't work out how to get that to link]
