First...I have finally graduated with a M.S. in Information Sciences. I'm proud to add this to my M.A. in Education, and I have dubbed them "the twins."
It's not a great picture, but you can see it's real!
Next, I made the difficult decision to leave my beloved position at the public library and accepted a position with a local elementary school as their school library media specialist. The public library has had a lot of drama going on all that I have absolutely no control over, and when the school position came up I decided to apply. When that job came through, I decided it was time to jump ship. It was a hard decision and caused a lot of sleepless nights and so many tears! I'm usually not much of a crier but I bawled a lot making this decision.
Now that the decision is made, I am super excited about my new position. It is going to be different in many ways, but the root is the same: to encourage kids and families to fall in love with books and reading!
I'm looking forward to an exciting 2011!
