trust

May 5, 2008 at 1:46 pm (Uncategorized)

I believe I have gushed before about how much I appreciate my job and my boss, but allow me to do so again. It is an indescribable feeling to know that I am trusted completely to make the right decisions and that I will always be backed up.

I have worked for my library system for 10 years as of yesterday, and all of the positions I’ve had here have been pretty flexible. I enjoy being able to take on new challenges, test new technologies, and try new things.

There have been some tempting job openings in the last couple of years, but knowing how good I’ve got it currently makes me want to stay in my current situation as long as possible.

Speaking of staying in a current situation, when I got pregnant I decided to opt of teaching in the fall semester (I’m due in October). However, the more I reflected on it, the online nature of the course I teach makes it ideal and I’ve decided to continue for a fifth semester. I have tweaked the course each semester, but am pretty happy with the current setup. This semester I began using a wordpress blog to primarily run the course management, using the ‘official’ course management tool for private discussion board postings and grade keeping. This worked out extraordinarily well and will allow me to set up the entire semester ahead of time.

    So good to see you posting again. I’ve missed your reflections on life and libraries. I’m glad you have that type of relationship with your supervisor. It makes a productive work environment.
