Greetings Darshell,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of 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 . 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!

Yes, I'd love to talk inner city kids. Do you work in an inner city? I've worked in Ititle 1 and alternative school almost my entire career.

Hey again Darshell,
Yes, it's been a long time for me too! I'd love to talk inner city TL stuff. I'm researching for my upcoming book / eCourse. Want to record a phone interview with me? My project is about reeling in reluctant readers - We should connect on Facebook too :-)

I’m the blogger at “J. Aday Kennedy: A Writing Playground”. Every month I focus on a topic to help authors write and promote their writing. In April, the focus will be books and why they’re selected by librarians, and how they’re chosen and used by teachers and homeschoolers..
I was roaming the internet and came across you. I think you can give some insight into the types of books that interest students and schools. Would you be willing to be interviewed? If so, email me at I hope I hear from you soon.
