Jacquie Henry On Paperwork


I received some great comments on my previous post on paperwork. I haven't had much time to comment or post as this is crunch time for my FINAL project for grad school. Luckily it's a team project and my team is doing all the heavy lifting while I mostly add the jokes. (Get it, heavy lifting. Broken wrist? Ah, never mind...)

Anyway, the always amazing Jacquie Henry has been doing a series of posts in which she is basically mentoring librarian noobs such as myself. So she bravely took on the task of answering my question about librarian paperwork in a full on post of her own!

She gives this warning, however:
Warning! Reading the above post might cause extreme drowsiness. Do not read if you plan to operate heavy equipment.

But seriously, it's great. I love what she says about never forgetting how hard it is to be a classroom teacher. Like the great George Clinton sings, "Teachers work harder than you do. No matter what you do."

(Oh, and I got the cast off but man does it ever still hurt. I start physical therapy this afternoon. Fun, I'm sure.)

I'll have to check out that George Clinton song.

Let me know if you find it! I heard him live at a Lalapalooza many years ago but he goes in and out of songs and it was more of a jam session. Never have found that track.

I found a track on Wolfgang's Vault: Concert Vault, a live performance from 1995 where he says it, but the one I heard was part of a longer song, but I don't know which one.
