  • Greetings Tom,

    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!

  • Hi Tom,

  • We're using Follett Destiny in our District and it is really wonderful. I think you'll really like it.
  • Hi Tom,

    Nice to "meet" you! It's great that you know where Kamloops is... not a lot of Californian's do!

    I've noticed that a lot of school districts in California are really on the "cutting edge" of integrating technology into education. How is your particular district and/or school doing with that?

  • How long have you been in the program at FPU? I started just a year ago. I am trying to find a position by the beginning of the next school year. I have never been as passionate about my career as I am now. It is like starting again with all of the enthusiasm and energy I had 30 years ago. It may make me not worry about when I plan to retire. Are you still in a classroom or have you found a library?
  • Hi Tom, Thanks for asking to be a friend. I have seen your comments on Calib. I need to get more involved here, but I have a lot going as I am working on my LMT (teacher-librarian credential).

  • No problem.This is such a great resource!
  • Hi Tom. I haven't checked in with TeacherLibrarianNetwork for a while. Thanks for the reminder. :)
  • hi tom! thanks for the invite.
