Greetings Joyce,


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 Joyce,

I just joined as a home educator, literacy advocate and children's book author. I have tried to post photos to my profile page 3-4 times but it keeps telling me I can't do so because I'm "not a member." I sure seem like one, though.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey, I just wanted to thank you for your AMAZING school library site - I used your evaluating sources powerpoint this week with my 11th and 12th graders - I edited it a little to fit my needs, but it was wonderful! Thanks so much for putting lessons and ideas on the web to help new high school librarians like me!!! :)

Joyce, I really enjoyed hearing you present at the conference this weekend. I could have listened to you all day. I've read about web 2.0 when lurking on this forum but was not confident about integrating until today. Thanks again.
