"Darcy, I'm so glad you are doing this, because I was interested in it as well. I can only hope that as the usage increases the price will go down. It will be interesting to know if there would be the ability to search for articles at an…"

I am a former high school science teacher and assistant principal, currently a relatively new teacher librarian in an elementary school. Quite a change in student populations, but not as different as I thought it would be. I have 2 sons, and too many pets and plants.

Current position and employment location
Teacher librarian in Adams 12
