Dear 2009-2010 Students,
As you move on to eighth grade, I, too, am moving on. I recently was offered a position as the teacher librarian at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach. As you know, I am passionate about the role of school libraries in fostering reading, research, information literacy, and technology skills, and am I therefore very excited to be returning to a library position. At the same time, I am so sad to be leaving Lindero. I had hoped to see all of you on campus this year and to get reports on how you are enjoying eighth grade. Since I won’t get to see you as planned, I do very much hope that you will keep me posted about your progress by email. My new school email is email@example.com. Please write to me! Or, you can leave a comment here. Remember, too, that you can continue adding postings to your blogs if you like. Please be sure to let me know if you are doing that, so I can follow you. You are also welcome to follow my new library blog.
It was a great pleasure and privilege spending the last year with all of you, and I wish you the very, very best this year and in the future.
