Hawthorn Library Media Center
Let's Learn Together!
Changes for Next Year
Next year, I have been given the opportunity to job share my position with another Library Media Specialist. I will be working until noon every day and then leaving so that I can spend more time with my daughter.
The afternoon classes will be taught by Nicole Boshard. Nicole was the Library Media Specialist at Line Creek Elementary for 9 years. She took this year off from work to stay home with her new baby. She is happy to be returning to Park Hill on a part-time basis next year. Nicole was my mentor when I first came into my position, so I have very high regard for her. She will do an excellent job at Hawthorn.
I am very grateful to Park Hill for giving us both this opportunity to balance our work and family lives. I have many friends in other school districts who are not allowed the opportunity to job share. I realize that I am very lucky to work in a district that understands the needs of working parents.
Summer Reading Programs
Barnes and Noble also holds a reading incentive every summer. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/b/summer-reading/_/N-rs9 Kids can earn a free book!
There are great prizes from both places and setting reading goals can greatly help kids avoid sliding back in their reading ability over the summer.
