And now story time:
In grad school during orientation week, one of our esteemed professors asked, "Is there anyone interested in school librarianship?" The crickets started chirping. Throughout my entire 2 years, the only thing I heard about school librarianship was that it was an obsolete job and that you would be the first person given the pink slip when the budget needed to be shifted. However, from the looks of it, it is becoming more and more in demand.
I pretty much fell into my job. I never thought about working at a school, let a lone working with teenagers. But here I am and it is the most interesting and challenging job I have ever had. It's great to see that certain states see the importance of this position and how it is an asset to a good education program.
