Why I like being librarian

I've done a few elementary library assignments now, so here are my thoughts.

Things I like:
It's different.Being in a classroom setting every day gets dull after awhile.
Classes are short, and there are different activities so students don't get antsy - sometimes they're doing research, sometimes I have to read a story or better yet, play one, and one time they had a cool treasure hunt to do. But I get to teach all different grades, and I like that.
I get a preview of what these classes are like - and what ones to avoid. I've already ruled out 2 I will never sub for.
There is quite a bit of downtime, but I'm kept busy. I shelve books or help students find books. I've also learned how to check out books. One assistant had me enter new arrivals into the system.



Downsides
Sometimes my throat hurts from all the reading I have to do to classes. I need a grande on the way home sometimes!
Some students use book check out to goof around. I usually hand them a book and tell them to go sit.
Other than that, I would recommend it.

I always have a good day when I am in the library. It is a nice change of pace and I enjoy it very much.

I have also subbed for the librarian a few times and LOVED it. I am an avid reader and fan of the library anyway, and I dislike technology. I love working with/around the books and showing the kids how fun and important books are.
