The daily life of a Middle School Library Media Assistant.

Monday, April 25, 2011


One of our students who loves to write, came and asked me about how to get something published. So I showed her a magazine website (Teen Ink) and showed her that most magazines have a submission link and gave her some advice on that. It was really exciting to see this young girl who is actually a good writer decide to try out publication! Another student today was in on the computer and when I asked him what he was doing, he said he was doing a job search, so I let him know that Trader Joe's is getting ready to hire next week, and he immediately went over to their website. Funny how you can touch the lives of two completely different people in two different ways :) Processed in two magazines for the library. Checked out two class sets of To Kill a Mockingbird (one more tomorrow!). Tried to get down to the shop class to see about materials for next month's bulletin board, but they were busy so I left. Then spent the day working on repairs. Did more checking in and out and money into print accounts. Had to look up some students for billing since they had turned in books they had been billed for and make sure that they were cleared of those charges. Then back to the repair grind! I love it when a book comes together!
