    I got my license! Now for a job. I am nervous because this will be a totally new way of thinking after many years of classroom teaching.

    Anything open in your current district? Aging school librarian near retirement? Our librarian is a former second grade teacher who just moved across the hallway to the library when the old librarian retired!

    Congrats!:D

    I don't know about openings yet. They haven't posted openings for next year. I worked hard for this new degree so I am definitely celebrating. I wanted to pursue this for several years because I love reading, books, technology and I am pretty good at finding things (natural information specialist). Thank you for the well wishes. I will post somewhere on the forums when I hear about positions. (maybe my teaching position will be open!)

    Yay!

    I wish you the best. Oh, but on second thought, we are border states so I don't know if I should...I want a library media specialist position as well and they're not easy to come by! :)

    Awesome! Get a copy of the school's current Collection Development Policy, get out the one I'm sure you had to make during your studies, and start adjusting as necessary! Get the specifics of your budget and the library's inventory. Man, I am happy for you, but...jealous.

    Congrats! I really wanted to get media specialist added to my license, but in my area they are laying off librarians in my area or having them return to the classroom. Librarian is actually one of the careers I have wanted to do since I was a child, along with teacher and lawyer. I decided to get a principal license instead.
