I haven’t put my plans down on paper, but I have been making extensive notes in Evernote of everything that happens. Hopefully, I will get some planning done today. My Moleskine page for the week is full!
Today is the first day of PrePlanning at my new school. I am nervous, but looking forward to meeting everyone and setting some long range plans. I can’t let everything just drift around in my brain. I have to get my plans down on paper which in my case means in Evernote.
I’m experimenting with a new blog theme. I’ve also added a Twitter feed to the sidebar. I feel a lot more comfortable with this theme because I don’t feel like I have to write great literature.
I visited my new school yesterday and met with the previous librarian. She is extremely organized and had over ten pages of notes to share with me. I haven’t done anything like that for the librarian who is taking my position at my old school.
I certainly appreciate the information she had to share, but it also scared me. There are so many procedures in place, not just in the library, but for the school itself.
I am just not a nit picky person, so it will be hard to keep all those “i”s dotted and “t”s crossed.
I have to keep reminding myself that I was hired to create a welcoming environment for the students and teachers.
THAT I know how to do!
On Wednesday, I begin a new job as the school librarian for Tift County High School – Northeast Campus. This is a school that serves the ninth grade only, so that is quite a difference from being in a school with grades six through twelve.
I will be meeting the previous librarian, Barbara Bondari, today to go over some idiosyncrasies (her word) of the library. I certainly appreciate her help. I have only been in the library once for a brief meeting with the principal, so I have a lot to figure out.
I packed up ten years of “stuff” at my old school on Friday. It filled up the bed of my husband’s pickup truck. I’m embarrassed to show up at NE with all of it. Obviously, I need to go through everything first.
