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!
Hello Nancy: I've just been reading your profile. Goodness - where do you find the time to do all you are doing? I'm really pleased to meet you and wish you well with all you are doing. I am a granny also but I live here in the Yorkshire Dales, England. Poetry is my hobby and i write hundreds of poems for children. It is really nice to meet you even though we live across the globe from each other. Best wishes - Josie
