My School Library

Hi! For the past two years I have been the school librarian at Hayes Middle School in Youngstown, Ohio. Prior to that I was an elementary music specialist in Youngstown City Schools for twenty years. I love teaching both music and library skills. This coming year, due to budget cuts I will be the librarian at two middle schools, Hayes and Alpha. It will be tough keeping up with all the clerical duties but I'm looking forward to getting to know the staff and students at Alpha. I especially enjoy helping students with computer research.

I have created a power point show of the Dewey Decimal System for my students to view this coming school year. I have alot of students ask me where to find books on different subjects and I'm hoping this video will help them. You can view it below. Please let me know what you think about it. I'm open to suggestions for improvement.

Your blog looks great. I wonder if we will have time to keep up with our blogs once the school year starts back up!

Your voice is great in the narration to your video. You sound like a pro. I am an avid reader too, but I never knew so much about the dewey decimal system. I am going to have my kids watch this video too. Nice job.

Very nice blog. I enjoy reading as well, however in the past years my time has dwindled so I don't get to read as much. Great video on the Dewey Decimal system - the students should enjoy it!
