I have wanted to be a media specialist for most of my career. What could be better than getting to share my passion for reading and words with kids? Oh yeah, getting to do that PLUS getting to help them discover and inquire on their own about topics that interest them.
In the past, people have made comments about their old views on librarians. My response is to tell them that it is not shelving and “shushing” kids anymore–librarians are cool! A team teacher, host as the “hub of the building” (I love hosting events–even if it is a faculty meeting), a life-long learner in technology, and of course, the person who can recommend fantastic books to young readers and curious minds.
