Getting Settled

Well, it's been 4 weeks since I started my new position as a teacher-librarian at a year-round elementary school in our neighborhood.

Self Check-In and Check-Out

Grades 3-5 Teaching Space

The students, staff, and administration are great. I love my 3-minute commute, saving gas money, and being able to leave at 2:45 P.M. if I'm ready for the next day. Extra time with my family is priceless!

I have a demanding teaching schedule with 4-6 classes each day. With a full teaching schedule and no assistant, I have very little time for cataloging, organizing, meeting with teachers, etc. However, I'm not feeling overwhelmed, so that's a good thing. I have a long to-do list, but things will get done...but longer than usual since I'm teaching all day and don't have an assistant.

I'm the 10th media specialist since my school opened in 2007. The students and staff have gone through many changes in the media center, so I'm hoping to bring some stability in the coming years!

The kids love Dewey!
