Teacher librarian or project manager?It's been a long time between blogs. I have a good excuse, as for the past two months I have been working non-stop on getting my school's new library completed and up and running. We have gone from this:
It has been a year of planning, meetings, research, discussions, ordering, workshops, etc. and definitely worth the experience, with the last 2 - 3 months being especially demanding. At times I felt like I was a project manager as I had to keep a very close eye on what the contractors were doing and consulting the plans on a daily basis.
I have learnt so much from an undertaking of this kind. Probably my biggest learning experience is that I should have been more attentive to detail (as in where power points were placed) as I have ended up with power and data points on the floor of the main thoroughfare that were intended to be hidden in the tree. There are many more examples of requests that were misunderstood and I will blog about these soon.
