Opportunity, A New (yet familiar)

Since our school is so large, there will be 2 Media Specialists. The two of us were on team together when I started my career. She taught Language Arts. We worked well together for 5 years. At times we had to do the "good cop, bad cop" thing. Several changes took place in our school after my first 5 years. She became the team leader, I went to the computer apps class, and we could only reminisce about former times and students. I am looking forward to working together again.

I was hoping to get into a Media Center (somewhere) within the next 5 years, and end my educational career in that service. I consider myself to be ahead of schedule. I started my adult life in a service sector (ministry). As a teacher, I always felt the position was one of helping/serving students. But in recent years, teaching doesn't seem to be about helping students as much as it has become teach the standards. I'll be discussing my thoughts on this topic periodically in this blog. For now I will simply end with my hope: that being in the Media Center will give me back the service concept, the "industry" in which I am most comfortable.
