Bookshelf: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Selznick

This is one of the best books I have ever read - a masterpiece for avid readers, artists and movie buffs!

Greetings Kay,

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!

Maneta Deaton and Janene Gorham suggested that I join this ning. I am currently a member of the VSTE ning ( and am happy to be a part of this network as well. The 2008-09 school year will be my debut as a library-media specialist! I am thrilled to have this opportunity to explore yet another aspect of teaching! My previous teaching experiences are classroom teacher, ITRT, adjunct professor at JMU and I even served a s a teacher's assistant for one year!
I anticipate having many questions and hope to collaborate often with all of the members in this ning! Have a great summer!
