About

I love Educational Technology.  I love books.  Whenever anyone asks me about my job as a middle school library media specialist, I tell them that I have the coolest job in the world, and I am not being sarcastic.

I am currently working on a doctorate in Educational Technology at Northern Illinois University.  I have a Master’s Degree in Written Communication from National-Louis University, and I did extensive graduate work there in Teaching English.  I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Science from NLU.  What can I say?  When I like a place, I stick around.

Before becoming an LMS, I taught English Language Arts and Social Studies for seven years.  I loved that, too.

I read too much.  I drink way too much coffee.  I really like new gadgets.  I have a social media and web 2.0 addiction.   And now I blog, too.  Uh-oh…

    So I am just now realizing that you JUST started blogging. Cool! Am I your first commenter? 🙂 Anyway, I blog about educational technology too! Well, on one of my blogs. My personal blog is lots of ranting…but my official educational articles are on a different site. Can’t wait to see what you write about. In another life, I would have been a librarian. Totally!

    You are! So, thanks! 🙂 I had a very schizoid Blogger blog for a few years, but decided to come to WordPress for a fresh start. A good decision, I think!

    Hi! I found your librarian page while searching for Redbox’s font to create a “read box” for my classroom library. I just finished cutting them out and they’re ready to be stapled on my bulletin board tomorrow. I was wondering, thought, did your husband by any chance make a swoosh that I can trace and cut, too? That would be a great help. I’m not very artistically inclined but I’m a perfectionist, so I want my library to be perfect! Or at least close to. Thank you!

    Good day, Kristina!

    I’m Kyle, an Ed-tech blogger. I happened upon your blog and really loved your posts!

    I’d like to express my interest in writing a piece for your blog, Thecaffeinatedlibrarian.com . I’d love to discuss this in more detail with you and send you some sample works if you want, so please do let me know if you’re interested in this collaboration I am proposing.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Regards,
    Kyle Albert
