This is my 30th year as an educator. I've worked in elementary schools, a junior high, and have spent the last 19 years at Desert Springs Middle School. I started as a 6th grade teacher when the school opened and 9 years ago had the wonderful opportunity to become the librarian.

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.
Hi, Jacquelyn. Nice to meet you! I started out as a Social Worker, went to graduate Library School (C.W. Post) then worked a variety of jobs here in upstate New York before getting my teacher certification. I'm a K-12 Librarian in a small, rural district. I interact with all grade levels but teach in the middle school/high school. I'm having great fun exploring the cyber universe. My latest fun toy is my blog, dmcordell.blogspot.com.
