Last week I resigned from my current placement as an MYP Teacher Librarian at an International school in HK. I have done this not because I was unhappy, or that I have another job to go to but because I want to try something new, something risky and something that gives me more flexibility with my time.
I am moving into the field of full time Professional Development for Educators. I want to see what exciting things people are doing out there and to learn from them. I want to facilitate dynamic and fulfilling learning experiences for adult learners, and, I want to do this because this is what lights my fire.
So what next? I have sent up a website, I have created preliminary workshop plans, I will also be creating short online upskilling courses for school librarians very soon. I am now reaching out to you if you know of an opportunity where I could facilitate a workshop or consultation in one or more areas of my expertise in your school or district from September 2015, please mention my name or let me know so I can apply. I am open to all suggestions anywhere in the world. I am also open to suggestions on topics that you are interested in that I currently do not have a plan for. I will put in 150% of my time and effort to bring your organisation one of the best learning experiences you will have as educators.
I will miss working in a school, especially the students and the funny things they do and say, but the time is right for me to do this and I believe I am ready as I will ever be for this challenge. I just need a little help from my friends and blog readers to get started.
If you are interested in applying for the vacancy at RCHK I will leave, please visit this page on the school website. Applications close January 9, 2015, the start date will be August 2015.
