The journey began about a year ago. My principal sent out an email asking if anyone was interested in applying for the librarian job. I first deleted the email. I was a math teacher and liked what I did, for the most part. There were a few things that I would change or maybe I had been a math teacher for so long that I was ready for a change. So I found the email and responded that I was interested. I really thought it was a long shot being that I was a math teacher and it is hard to find new math teachers. And the job would start in January 2016 and finding a math teacher in the middle of the year is even harder. But I think that my background helped me get the job and one very special teacher. I had worked in a public library throughout high school and college and my mom is a librarian. I also have a background in computers and technology plays a huge part in this new job. And I also believe that one special teacher told my principal that I was perfect for the job. I really have no idea what the real reason is that I got the job but I am so blessed that I was given this chance. I am excited about all the changes I am going to but into place.
I did start in January but I really count August 2016 as my starting date. I bumbled around during Spring 2016 and found my footing once the new school year started. This Fall semester I have done a lot of work already. I have moved bookshelves around and reorganized where fiction, nonfiction, and reference is located. I have even finished inventory on nonfiction. All of this work would not have been completed without the help of my wonderful Library Pages.
