I have always believed that an effective media specialist’s job is never complete at the end of the school day. Case in point… The day begins listening to voice mails and reading numerous emails (cries for help – troubleshooting technology needs, VCR/DVD problems and yes, even video editing). Once the media team meets at 7:00 a.m. we divide and conquer the priorities that have to be addressed so our teachers can serve our students effectively. In many cases, we have to troubleshoot after the students are out of the building. I am just lucky that are team is always about serving others or I don’t know how the teachers would be able to accomplish all they need to get done. We have each become amazing jugglers and have even giggled about our going “on the road” with our act.
The juggling of teaching classes, checking out resources, video-conferencing and planning for upcoming events, (book-fairs, Battle of the Books competition, literary pumpkin festival, kindergarten Pow-Wow, 1st grade pajama sleepover, author/illustrator visits, cultural arts festival and so much more) makes every day different and exciting. I am so lucky to be living my dream.
We truly believe that we are the one stop shop for our beloved school.
Love, The Book Fairy
