I’ve worked in the library at James Hargest College for over 12 years and I’ve loved every minute of it. I love the environment, I love the students, I love the challenge and I especially love the staff. They are an amazing bunch of professionals. So you may be surprised to hear that at the end of February I’m leaving. This was no easy decision, but I recognise a good move when I see one.
In March I’m beginning at a new school with new challenges, new opportunities and new collaborations. And my new role is getting me very excited! I will be joining the staff at Southland Boys High School in the new role of Research and Learning Coordinator, working with the teaching and learning team designing, planning, implementing and evaluating an embedded and coordinated approach to teaching information literacy and research skills in a digital age to both students and staff. This role also has oversight of the physical library and services offered there.
This is an incredible opportunity to progress my career in a new way, and for me combines the best of what it means to be a librarian with my absolute passion for education and working with young people (in this case young males!)
Needless to say, I look forward to sharing my new journey here on my website and I also look forward to continuing to work with you all in some form throughout 2013 and beyond.
