January 2012 Update: Nice! Now teaching a graduate course on Science Resources at CUA School of Library and Information Science
July 6, 2009 Update: I began my new job as Coordinator, Science Libraries at the Catholic University of America
April 2009 Update: I am now living in Fairfax, VA …looking for my next Library job!
I was a Librarian at a private High School in Toledo, Ohio. I began blogging in 2006. I consider this blog my learning log – not just for my job, but also for my life. Writing, in any form, connects people and ideas.

From the first ever blog post April 2006…
Just Do Good Work
I have blog procrastination. I have it bad. I now have a title for my blog – thanks to my friend Mary Lou who told me today that she just wants to do good deeds and having to work for a living gets in her way – but, still I stopped before commencing to write and ‘shopped’ my font files to pick just the right one that would please me while I was composing. Of course, I know that when I copy and paste the file to the actual virtual home of the blog, fonts don’t matter. So, now with title and font issues settled, do I have anything to say?
I do. I’m scared silly to say some of it for any audience but, how do we know if a thing is worth doing unless we try? I want to think, write, share ideas and maybe commiserate a little and change a little about the state of education today. I work in a high school as a librarian. My main work is books and technology, so, much of this blog will be about… you guessed it, books and technology and kids and teaching and information and ideas and my work. Is any of what I have to say important or life changing? Who knows?
I don’t know. So, I will try to just do good work.
Why blog? It is the first question. Will it change anything? Will it help anyone? Will it give me any professional satisfaction to order my thoughts about my work? Will it inspire? Will it comfort? Will it matter?
I don’t know. So, I will just do good work, and
…see what happens.
