As a charter school librarian I often feel isolated and alone. I don’t have a district meeting to attend I have no other librarians with which to collaborate. I know I learned how to weed and build a curriculum during my library endorsement but learning and hands on are a different story. I am eternally grateful for UELMA. It has given me a place to ask questions, learn skills and make friends with other librarians. If you are a lonely librarian such as I, or you know other librarians who might feel lonely please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also please introduce them to our lovely organization of UELMA. Our focus on the board is to reach out and let you know we are not alone but also give you resources to make you a better librarian regardless of your schooling or previous background. I love what I do and want to be able to share and collaborate with amazing teacher librarians like you. Thank you for promoting a love of learning. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
