I'm finished ... and here's my news


So I'm just going to quietly get off my high horse and tell you that I've accepted a job as a teacher librarian working - wait for it - four days a week.  


This was certainly not on my agenda when I wrote the earlier post.  I wasn't looking for a new job, but a friend told me about the job, I applied, got an interview and here I am.

I'm excited and thrilled with the opportunity.  It is a lovely school, I'll be part of a team and the head librarian is a leader in the field.  Sad to be leaving the public library I currently work at and sad to leave my colleagues and the kids I work with.  

Have we quite worked out how it is all going to work out with the kids?  Umm - well, sort of, kinda, (not really).

But hey - aren't you glad you'll be able to share the journey with me?!

welcome to crazyville.

Seriously - sounds like a great job. Buy a freezer and hire a cleaner to keep you sane.

Hope the new job doesn't curtail the blogging too much.
But it sounds fantastic...well done, you!

Yes, ditto to Karen's comment about blogging. :)

The job sounds great, and hey...you are still part-time! Well done.

That's brilliant! Well done.

The teacher librarian at our school is amazing. The only staff member who makes announcements on assembly that I want to hear. Sure you'll be the same.

That sounds really wonderful. Holidays at the same time as the kids and a great job where you can make an impact on lots of lives. Congratulations and enjoy!
