Check out my blogspot - M A G E E's Blog

M A G E E's Blog is my original blog and I don't feel like it gets any hits. It certainly doesn't get many comments. So, I'm writing about it here in hopes of gaining readership which will hold me more accountable for journaling on it. You can signup to have emails when I post something new.

The latest post is about the "Learning 2.0 A Colorado Conversation" Conference. You should check out if you don't already know about…

Daily Lit -

Would you read a book from your email or an rss feed? I am going to try it out. My initial thought is yes of course I would, but time will tell. I am a little skeptical of myself.

Dailylit began in May of 2007 from an idea generated from the NY Times special supplements of serialized classics. Dailylit takes the same approach only through email or rss.

I've been reading "The Message" online this way for the past two years. Yes, many days I do not read it as the amount of… Continue

Answer Board Librarians, Ask Colorado, etc. - What about school librarians?

I don't remember how I came upon this site: Answer Board Librarians at, but I signed up much like I do for others sites like this and then "sat on it" for a while. Takes me some time to get the feel for a site and decide to participate even if I am a member.

This site seems to be mostly participated in by public library staff, but why not have a school library contingent? Check it out and let me know what you…

Greetings Connie, 

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!

Abbeville didn't get much from Katrina, but it did take a BIG hit during hurricane Rita! It hit right up Vermillion bay and devastated the low lying farmlands around Abbeville so they got hit pretty bad. They have recovered better than NO, but it has taken time. My nephew is going back to UNO this winter, he had just started when Katrina hit, he tried to go back the next semester, but the crime was pretty bad and the dorms hadn't really recovered so he took a year and went to UL in Lafayette instead. My sister lives in Lafayette and works as a pastry chef at Poupart's so he was okay, but he is going to try again this Jan. Where did your sister live in Spring Branch? It is a pretty cool place to work mainly because of Dr. Barry Bishop, we just started a new online Professional dev. program based on the Charlotte Mecklenberg library in North Carolina. It is called Library2Play, check it out at the link below and let me know what you think.
Again, it's really good to hook up!

Hi Connie,
I am originally from Abbeville, small town south of Lafayette. I did my undergrad at UNO with a major in Speech/Theatre Ed. and a minor in Lib. Sci. Then when we moved to Houston I ended up in Spring Branch --- great place to work! I got my Masters from UNT, but haven't talked myself into going for that Doctorate yet ---- maybe one day!?! Do you enjoy CO after the flat lowlands of LA??? We lived in Knoxville, TN for a year, and absolutely loved it there! We would like to move back in the next couple of years, we just need to work up to the whole "moving" thing!!! It was great "hooking" up --- let's keep in touch, I love to hear from transplanted Louisianaians!

Thanks for adding me as your friend! I love hooking up with others from Colorado. By the way, have you received any notices about the Feb. 1-2 Librarian Days sponsored by Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) at Metro State? It's a real deal when you can get a librarian/teacher team to attend AND have TPS pay for your subs. -Mary

Your thoughts are well taken. My daily motto is, "What can I do today to increase the student achievement at my school?" Whether it is with one student, one class, or an entire grade level or department. I am spread so thin, all I can do is what is in front of me that day!
