I retired from the University of South Florida Tampa Library in 2009.
I am currently teaching as an adjunct for UMUC's Masters in Distance Education certificate program and teaching sections of mandatory 1 credit courses on use of library and internet resources.
June, 2010 to date: Volunteer Director of Library Service, University of the People - supporting the first online tuition-free university.
In the past I have done some adjunct work for University of South Florida' s School of Information both online and face-to-face. Teaching for what was then the School of Library and Information Science gave me my first opportunity to teach online in 1996.
For fun...I'm interested in the use of virtual worlds for education - mainly Second Life. There is a great group of educators and librarians there!
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!
