Follow Your Bliss-Back to the Library

After three years as an instructional technologist, I am excited to announce that I will be returning to the library. I have learned so much and enjoyed getting to know teachers across our district. It has been a pleasure to be on the team that rolled out 1:1 iPads to our schools.
Even though I have enjoyed this position, I have missed being in the library, promoting reading, planning student programs and being an integrated part of a school culture. I was thrilled to find out that I had been hired as one of our high school librarians. It was obvious to me that I had lost a bit of my spark when I realized that I had not blogged in about one year. I even found myself approaching kids wandering the stacks of a library that I was working in so that I could recommend a recent read or help them find a book.
I hope to share more of my journey during my transition back to the library. I already have several ideas in the works for this summer. Wherever you are and whatever you do, I hope that you are following your bliss-advice I haven't forgotten since watching Bill Moyers' interviews with Joseph Campbell in my high school senior ELA class.
