I'm Number 2!

I'm my former library media professor's number two choice for a guest spot for the online part of one of his classes this week!  It's an honor, I tell you.  I knew forwarding him those Honey Badger Don't Care videos would pay off one day.

But seriously, it'll be interesting to see how it goes.  I had an email exchange with him not long ago about Google's cool Power Searching class (which is happening right now and is totally worth it). Since he teaches course design, I thought he might find it interesting.  So I may be talking with the class about that or anything else they want to talk about. I know one of the more interesting things we did when I was working on my degree was getting the opportunity to talk to some real live working media specialists about what they do.  (Now if I could only figure out what it is I do...)

So if there's anything you think I should tell them or if you are visiting the blog because you are in Dr. Clinton's class, then post your comments and questions in the comments and I'll try to answer as many as I can!

Hi Jim, I'm in Dr. Clinton's class. My question is- what is your professional background? Have you always been a media specialist? I am one of two people out of my cohort who is not currently a classroom teacher. I'd love your advice on the transition into the education field or the transition from teaching to being a media specialist (which is more relevant for my class in general), depending on your experience. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us tomorrow night!
