It's been a long time since I've posted a blog! I am just realizing exactly how long as I look at this, and I have to say...bad librarian! I am so sorry! That being said, maybe it means I've just been too busy doing the real life work of a librarian. I think about how I always want to have a great online presence, and now, I think I can make that a priority!
For the newer students, WELCOME TO VMCCA!
However, I know that this is a surreal welcome, especially to the freshmen who were looking forward to a new experience. I wanted to say how impressed I already am at your resilience and dedication to just getting it all done! This is new to us all, and maybe this is a nice way to ease into the new experience? I hope that's what it is.
For those of you struggling, know you can always ask for help! For those of you who are enjoying the seemingly laid back approach, please don't become complacent...remember that this is still a place where we value the deeper learning experiences. What can this online presence bring to the table? Be the digital natives that you are, and bring out the best in us all!
Let me know what you need! I want to be there for you all!
So, as a welcome back, for both my blog and our students, I say be well! Be safe! And be present!
