Why do you need a Master's Degree to become a librarian? Isn't Google replacing libraries/librarians?
One of my favorite quotes from an author name Neil Gaiman is, "Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A Librarian can bring you back the right one". In a world where we are saturated with information, Librarian's help to sift through all of the nonsense and provides accurate information. Not only that but being a Librarian is not just a job walk up do. Librarians do more than just deal with books. We deal with advance technology, research and instruction, various public issues like homelessness, budget writing, etc. Librarianship is a field of study, rather than just a job and therefore more education is needed so that we can do our job to the best of the our ability.
Subject: College Admissions
What do I need to have in a resume for a College Application? (This is a question that I got a lot from my high school students in the library).
First, you need to understand how to write a resume, and the format that is needed for your application, which we can go over. Next, the important things that a College wants to see are your academic achievements, and all of your extra curricular activities. For example, if you were in Robotics Club, include what you did in that particular club, any regional/national competitions that you won, etc. Keep short and sweet because you can explains details about anything on your resume in the college application letter.
Subject: Early Childhood Education
How would a "Circle Time" session for Toddlers (ages 1-2 1/2) look like in a typical Early Childhood classroom setting? How long should it last?
Circle Time is a great way to get your class together and participate in large motor activities, as well as practice social-emotional skills. Circle Time can include songs that the children can participate in and sing/dance along, to stories that involve visual aids and having the children participate in story telling, and various other large motor activities. Circle Time is also a time where Toddlers learn how to sit, listen, and engage in a group activity. This is a time where everyone can be together, learn about each other and how to be in a group. Circle Time should last as long as the children are interested, but not son long that the children loose interest.
