I've been working in school libraries for 10 years. After working most recently at the Telluride Middle High School library, I realized my passion was early literacy development and the role of libraries in supporting students and teachers in achieving success with the reading curriculum and standards. I recently completed my Elementary Teacher Certifcation at Western State and am excited to return to the K-6 library setting after several years away from school libraries. I look forward to integrating Web 2.0 into my teaching and library information literacy instruction and would love to become a more active member of CASL again.

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.
