I have been a school librarian since 2005. I just recently moved back to my home state of WV in 2010 to become the Gilmer County High School Librarian. I finished my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology. I am currently working on getting a WV Technology Integration Specialist code added to my WV teaching license.
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!
