I'm the librarian. It is no longer a keeper of the books job. I teach 7-8 classes each day ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. I'm also the parent coordinator and on the PTO. It's a lot with a baby but it makes me feel accomplished. It is a need in me to teach and to work outside of the home. Even if I won the lottery I think I would work, even if it was just volunteering. I love all things school. I've always been addicted to school. When I was in elementary I would go to school on the last day just to get the leftover school stuff the teachers were throwing away. I loved school and really loved playing school.
On October 1 we put out some fall/Halloween decorations to spruce up the place with a more festive look.
My favorite decoration is the 3 little glitter pumpkins. You can flip a switch and turn them on and they light up with different colors. I got these for $1.50 each at Dollar General. The pumpkin garland shimmers because of the lighting above. People come in and say I love the lighted pumpkin garland. There are no lights but it looks so cool.
I have windows covering 3 sides of this room so we joke that we are the aquarium. All day long we have people knocking on the glass to wave. We feel like animals at a zoo but it is fun always getting to people watch.
Fostering the love of reading for kids is one of the greatest jobs. When you recommend a book and they love it you just feel up with happiness. I have one student who is reading The Babysitter Club series and I love sharing my love for those books. I feel like a 5th grader all over again.
