I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
Thanks for adding me. I joined this network last year but haven;t had much time to be active on it. Facebook takes up what little time I have for social things although this one is more of a professional network. I see you're friends with Israel Yanez. I am too, both here and on FB.
Hope you have a Happy Holidays / Merry Christmas!
I hear you on the state of LIS education today. I'm lucky enough to get mostly excellent instructors who set high standards, but I have had a couple of "cupcake classes" where the instructors sort of just phone it in... the dangers of online/distance ed courses.
