orientation

Yesterday was my orientation for the new gig...my first day is Wed 8.11

It was a great day. Everyone was crazy nice...could this really be happening, I thought.

I sat next to one of our new librarians...before she arrived, I pictured a 60-something lady with white hair pulled back in a bun...um, yeah I was REALLY wrong...shame on me. She is actually mid-20s (guessing), with long blonde hair and really nice. My how the librarian role has changed since I was in school...it's actually a "teaching" position (neat!!). After we had our delicious group lunch, she showed me one of her favorite children's books... "Do Unto Otters" It is super cute...and of course I had to add it to my Amazon Wish List for E to read someday. I think I found a great new resource for getting good book recommendations, childrens and adult books! Hooray!!

I also found out I'll get a little moolah to spend on my "office"...you know, like teachers get for their rooms!! Wowser..how awesome!! And for those of you on Twitter, you saw the lovely gift basket each of the new employees received. Awesome!! It was a great day!

I'm really excited to get in there and get started.

Yay for awesome new job! But please enlighten those of us who aren't interesting enough to have a blog, Facebook AND Twitter account as to the awesomeness that was the new employee basket!

Amy...the basket was really nice...chocolate, water bottle, lanyard, magnet, sharpies, highlighters and more...if you want to see a pic...go to my Twitter stream and you can see the Twitpic. :)

Oooo! Sounds like you're going to get spoiled at this school! You sure do deserve it! And librarians are very, very cool and hip and young. :)

sounds good so far! I hope it stays that way for you =) What a cute title for a children's book indeed. Can't wait to hear more about it (as in, the position!)

Gosh, I'm sooo behind. First, congrats on the new job! Second, what happen to Oscar? I went past about 10 posts and nothing.
