- No two days/weeks/years are alike
- So many different aspects to the work
- Always something new to learn and do
- Serving students, teachers, parents
- The books!
I chose this profession because I knew it would keep me on my toes. I thrive on learning new things and serving many roles I am a librarian, teacher, counselor, technology specialist, reader, curriculum developer, and professional development deliverer.
There is great beauty in the creativity and diversity the position offers. However, for all of those same reasons I can sometimes find myself swimming in a sea of all of the above and finding myself underwater. There isn’t enough time to be who I want to be for ALL of my students, teachers, and parents. There just aren’t enough hours. I want to try new initiatives, develop collaborations with teachers, try out that new tool I read about, make a dent in my “to be read” pile, catch up with my professional reading, write a blog post, and learn from my Twitter PLN.
