I am a business teacher currently teaching Computer Applications. I also teach a course called Employability Skills online at The Virtual High School. I love online teaching and learning. This is my 42nd year of teaching and my third year of online teaching. I am a native of Maine and have taught primarily at the secondary level. In 1994 I served as Maine's Teacher of the Year, and in 1995 I was selected to receive a Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award. I also am a Past President of the National Business Education Association and have written seven textbooks and authored nearly 25 articles in the area of business and communication. I have a wonderful husband who is a retired college professor, and we have two cats--Princess Margaret Rose and Prince Edward.

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!
