Name of Your School / Library / Organization:
I'm barely surviving my first year as the librarian at University High School in Normal, IL. Even after six years as a high school librarian, a new job presents some tough new challenges! I love YA lit and library 2.0 goodies and try to bring both to my students & faculty.

Greetings Abeaman,


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!

Hi Anita,

That is comforting...somewhat : )

I spoke with Caroline yesterday after our 454 class about the group project that will be assigned for your class while I'm away. She said I could be in her group, if that's alright with you. And she could then meet with me when I return and give me the low down on the project.

Hi Anita,
It's great to have you as a member of the BCC group. What are some of your tough new challenges? How has bringing YA lit and Web 2.0 tools affected your collaborations?
So many questions already....
