I am a Library Media Specialist in a gr.3-5 Intermediate School who, thanks to the Internet@Schools east conference this past week, has been enlightened about Web2.0. Since this is all so new to me, I am slightly overwhelmed but excited about it all. Right now, I am more of an observer than an active participant because, quite honestly, I have to become familiar with so much (I have info-overload right now!) Thank you for welcoming me into the network.

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 don't know how good I'll be at keeping track, but this one comes to my e-mail, so it will be easier to do. I hope you have a great time on your vacation. Something tells me you are a sports fan! I will check out the link you sent.
Thanks. Have a good time.
I have wondered the same thing. I am in the rotation for specials and therefore have such a short time, in fact, no other time to devote to other more fun activities. If you get some great tips, I'd like to hear them.
