I have been involved in education in one way or another for the past 30 years. I was a language arts teacher for the first 20 years and then became a librarian--first at a middle school and most recently at the high school level. I have written reviews of young adult books for the past eleven years for School Library Journal. I always teach my students the only way to improve your writing is to write so I must do as I say and write--therefore the blog. I can include my reviews as well as pass along tidbits of news items I feel could be useful to librarians!
We have the opportunity to experience one of the most dramatic changes in publishing history--comparable to the advent of the printing press. Keeping abreast of technological change as it applies to the publishing industry while sharing the love of reading in whatever form the words are delivered--a lofty goal to be sure, but sure sounds fun to try, right?
