Teaching Stop Motion Animation @ Gearity Elementary Tech Club’s Maker Space

Recently, I’ve been gifted with an amazing opportunity of being a Teaching Assistant at Gearity Elementary for their after school Tech Club. For five weeks, we will be exploring the many aspects of stop motion animation techniques and learning basic fundamental story telling. At the end of the class, we will be having a “red carpet screening party” at our library where kids can invite their family and friends. This is a super exciting project and I am soo happy to be a part of this representing Heights Library !

My new job!

095174e

I am ecstatic to announce that I am beginning a new job and forging a new path in my life. After much post graduate / moving back to Cleveland confusion of what “I want to do”, I have finally found a long term solution. A lot of my friends are librarians, and it had never occured to me to pursue this path, ever, until pretty recently… I was already spending a lot of time at the library – doing research, taking advantage of their numerous offerings, and genuinely just being interested in learning everything I can. Then, I saw they had a position open, the interview was FUN and for the first time in a long time, I felt really genuine about explaining my experiences and qualifications for such a position.  And here I am now, about to start a new career as a Youth Services Associate @ Heights Libraries! The best part, it’s a part time position 20-28 hours per week, they are a FIVE STAR Library, and is very close to my house. Looking back at a list I made earlier this year of “what my dream job is” – being able to be creative, learn, grow, flexibility, and a short commute were very high on my list. I look forward to this opportunity and definitely feel like “everything happens for a reason”, because this awesome job really has no limits. My infinite love for libraries, and my constant thirst for learning are part of a lovely balance of *work* and finding time to spend in my art studio.
