In a small school, the School Library and Media (SLAM) guy can wear many different hats and this week was no exception. In fact, it was a week that made me remember why I LOVE MY JOB.
At one moment I was helping kids with their research papers in all phases of the process and conducting a weeding project of the catalog. The next I was revising a draft of the school improvement plan and troubleshooting some computer problems down the hall while running a remote installation of Second Life for a workshop next week. Did I mention that the school is embarking on a new publicity campaign called the Andrews Advantage and that I was making some poster sized reprints of historic photos? And the list goes on and on.
Sometimes it seems as if nothing is getting completed, and new items are added to the growing list of tasks. Taking time to reflect and talk with others, especially students, makes me realize that a great deal is being accomplished and that it is making a difference in the lives of our students. Can’t wait till next week!
