New Job @FVSofColorado
As of July of this year, I have been employed at Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The school is a boarding and day school for high school students. I was hired as a Library Technology Educator. The Hawley Library is three stories with archives, past periodicals, classroom and storage in the basement. The first floor houses the Reference and Fiction section, the Broadmoor Garden Club library and the magazines and newspapers. There is the Taylor Reading Room on the first floor which includes all the Art books. The second floor has the Non-Fiction section along with the Burling Room which is used for classrooms and tutoring.
At Fountain Valley School it is recommended that all students bring a laptop or other device. Some teachers are using devices in their classes, other teachers are not. We are looking into what it means to be a BYOD (bring your own device) school. Currently the Director of Technology and myself hold “Lunch and Learns” once a week on Wednesdays. We are trying to offer different topics and add in some advertisements for what are new tools that are available for teachers. It is an exciting place to be working and learning.
