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!
I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
I'm new to this site, so just trying to make introductions. I noticed that you are from Canada, and as I am currently working in Cote dIvoire West africa,
I thought we could trade info. Well, more likely, perhaps you could help me with French language resources.
I am currently working with an American school there, but I am also doing projects with a couple of orphanages building libraries and computer centers. So I thought, perhaps you might be ale to point me in the direction of some good French language materials for the equivalent of k-6 grade students...? Any luck?
