  • Greetings Dennis, 

    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!

  • Hey Dennis,
    I'm intrigued by what happen, but not 100% clear. Can you elaborate a little more. I love how these connections can occur :-)

    Here is your message:
    "Hi Mike, thanks for the reach out. How's this for synergies, I added Joyce Valenza to my twitter list and scrolled through her followers just yesterday. I recognized your name when you wrote!"
  • Hi Dennis,
    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.

  • Dennis,
    I will be at NECC We will be having a hook up at NECC with the ALA conference in Anaheim using TLVN. Like to invite you if you have the time. Otherwise, hope to see you at NECC.
  • Thank you for the warm welcome, Dennis. I'm looking forward to sharing with everyone.
  • hi Dennis,

    Nice to hear from you about your passion and interest. Hope we will interact and learn from each others' experiences. I will share few insights about my work here in Pakistan with you shortly.

  • Hi Dennis:
    I have to admit I'm just starting to explore these resources. The state of Iowa recently reinstated teacher librarians back in the code, so AEAs are trying to offer professional development opportunities to help them meet the new requirements of the law. Of course information literacy will be a huge part of this! I'm excited about the possibilities! Thanks.
  • Hi Dennis,
    Thanks for the invitation to join the group and it is nice to meet you online! I am a huge fan of the Information Fluency website - in fact, I just did a keynote talk at the New England Reading Association today with Don Leu and we mentioned your site and demonstrated the great supports available for online critical evaluation.

    I am looking forward to learning from/with all of you as I think we have a lot of common interests!

    :-) Julie
  • Hi Dennis-
    Just joined and look forward to networking with some neat people. I enjoy your website 21century and have used it as a reference in an upcoming manuscript I'm hoping to publish soon.
    Take care,
  • Hi Joan, I'm glad you found me here! Carl and I are launching an information fluency group here in TeacherLibrarianNing. Click groups and you'll see us! Why not join?

    Anyone in our class who sets up an account, will get one of our newsletters announcing this. Perhaps that's the way you found us?

    I can tell you're having fun in class!
