Yesterday I came to the end of a rather hectic 3 years at St Joseph’s College, having filled the role of Head of Library and Information Services.
At my farewell the Headmaster, Ross Tarlinton, explained to all the major brief he had gave me in coming to the position. He looked for the renewal of the College library as a Centre of Learning – and this required pedagogical and physical changes.
He acknowledged that the journey was not easy! But he was delighted that we had made it and that recently he was pleased to be interviewed about our developments at the College.
While it was certainly an exciting challenge, and one that I am proud to have been able to undertake, it’s also an era of my life that I am very glad to see come to an end. I have many stories to tell (happy ones and sad ones) and many experiences to share.
But all that will have to wait for another time, another cup of coffee.
In 2011 I am off to my new role as Lecturer in the Faculty of Education with Charles Sturt University. I’ll be joining a wonderful team of educators in the School of Information Studies, and am really looking forward to working with teachers and teacher librarians in schools, helping them bring the best out of the learning environments that they find themselves in.
Until I have my image portfolio better organised, here are some before and after photos of our makeover to share!!
