TL in the Classroom Moving Back to the Library!
Almost exactly a year after I started this blog to help reconcile myself to becoming a "TL in the Classroom," I am incredibly excited to report that I am returning to a school library the end of this month! On Monday I was offered a position as the TL at a wonderful high school, Mira Costa, in Manhattan Beach. I am still trying to process the news, but can't wait to get going on another new chapter in my life. I feel confident that the experience I had in the classroom will only enhance my preparation for my new position. And, with a year outside the library, I've had a lot of time to rethink my philosophy about a whole variety of library issues. What will be brand new for me is moving to high school after spending 8 1/2 years in middle school. I really love the quirkiness of middle schoolers, but I feel ready and able to "graduate" to the next level. Please send me good thoughts as I embark on this next chapter!
As for this blog, I need a bit of time to figure out what its future will be. I haven't managed to blog as regularly on it as I would like, but I've enjoyed the experience when I have. I am also rather sad to know that I will have to abandon loftonclass.edublogs.org, which was my daily companion during the last school year. I kind of hate the idea of leaving not just one, but two blogs behind, so I am hoping I can figure out how to morph this one into "TL Back in the Library," or something like that and also start a new blog for my new library. Please stand by as I sort this all out.
And, if you are one of the TLs in the classroom out there, please take heart from my news and don't give up!
