Currently, I work in a Public Library Children's Department. While I love my job, I was educated to be a School Librarian. Beyond that- there are going to be significant lay-offs and demotions in my library system come October. I am up for promotion from Library Associate to Librarian because I have an MLIS, however there will be no promotions in the near future due to budget. My Masters Degree from FSU is Specialized in School Library Media and I am certified to teach Library from K through 12. I know my stuff. Moreover I live, breathe, and dream my work. I am a Children's Librarian with all that is in me. I really want to work in an elementary school. Of course there is always that catch 22 that I cannot get experience in a school library if someone isn't willing to give me the opportunity! There are hardly any job opportunities out there, so I have to hope that my MLIS and my passion for my work are enough to get me in that ever elusive door.
Wish me luck!
