My name is Suzanne Sannwald, and throughout the next few months, I will be using this blog to share my journey in SJSU’s LIBR 200. I originally started this blog to reflect on my new career as a school librarian, and since my curent course of study directly supports this work, I think that this is a perfect outlet for these class-related posts.
As I briefly mentioned, I have been fortunate to recently start in a dream position as a high school teacher librarian. While I already had my teaching credential, I am working under an emergency teacher librarian credential with the condition that I earn proper certification within the next couple of years. In addition to completing SJSU’s Teacher Librarian program, I also plan to stay on for an additional year to earn a full MLIS.
When I’m not at work, I spend time with my husband, my seven-year-old son, and my four-year-old daughter. We have had many pets over our years together, but currently just have one dog, one cat, and two lizards. My husband and I had always been mammal kind of people and never would have considered reptiles...until having our son who happens to adore them. I love the way that kids introduce us to so much in the world that we might otherwise overlook. I find that my kids at work and at home are always teaching me something new.
I look forward to getting to know all of my new LIBR 200 classmates!
