Supporting versus starring role--what do you feel most comfortable doing? For me, I am all about the support. When considering changing careers this last time, I took a hard look at when I was happiest in my previous jobs--and it was when I was in a position to support others. Resource teacher, NICU unit assistant, ARD facilitator...they were all jobs that helped others do their work more efficiently.
As a librarian, I get to support the curriculum for the entire school and the reading lives of the learning community. Promoting the library program is an important part of the job, but in my mind, it comes in second. I would like to think that if I'm an effective support person, word-of-mouth advertising is the best promotion I could ask for.
Save the spotlight and the headlines for the library; I'm content to be mentioned in the playbill.
