A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

I just signed on to this site yesterday. I am excited about having the opportunity to "play in the sandbox" with all of you. I have been a teacher librarian in Watertown, Massachusetts for about 17 years. I am happy to find a place where I can share experiences and thoughts about the field of school librarianship. Since hearing Chris Harris speak at the MSLA conference in Sturbridge, MA last fall I have been reading and exploring everything I can get my hands on regarding Web 2.0. In Massachusetts I see the job of school librarian and tech specialist moving closer and closer. In some communities school librarians are expected to do both jobs. I wonder if this is a trend that will catch on and change the way our jobs and libraries look in the future. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. School librarians have always been in the forefront of technology in schools. Remember when computers first started appearing in schools and administrators didn't know what to do with them, they gave them to the librarians. We figured out what to do with them.

Unfortunately I will not be there. But there is a team of teachers going from my district. I really wanted to attend but I had conflicts during that week.
