I want to be…a librarian!
For my MLS technology course, I was assigned to compose a paragraph briefly explaining my professional goals, for my ePortfolio. Did I hit all the points, folks?
I’m eager to begin my career as a librarian and I am building a full repertoire of skills and experience that will enrich my professional practice. I expect to earn my MLS by 2012, with a School Media Specialist certification, but I’m open to working in a public or school library setting. My undergraduate specialization was in education and I have many teaching experiences, so I already know how much I enjoy helping children and teens to make the most of the resources available to them and to appreciate the importance of the written word. As I predict my professional life as a librarian, I see myself working on the front lines of a reference desk or information literacy classroom every day and interacting with different people. I will learn from my patrons as much as they learn from me, and I will be thankful every day for the blessing of getting to help people in a vocation I love.
PS – Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. I get way too caught up with school, work, and life, and I’ve strayed too far from my home[page]. I’ll be posting more often, and hopefully include some reviews of recent reads.
