 Well this week has been a sad week in my county in Georgia.  We had a RIF this 
week and have lost from what I am hearing about 96 jobs.  We had two high schools 
which had two media specialists and everyone else had one.  We got word this week 
that the two of us who are second media specialists would be transferred to 
elementary schools which have media specialists retiring. We are very relieved that 
we at least have jobs, but sad that what we have worked to achieve may be lost.  We 
have over 1800 students at my school and it will be very challenging for the other 
media specialist to offer the services that we were able to offer.
   I've been reading from many of you the last couple of years how you have been 
cut in your counties and states  and knew it was coming to us eventually.  Just 
very sad that it has taken place.  They hope that things will rebound and be able 
to rehire a second media specialist again, but I am doubtful.
     So I will be making the transition from high school to elementary and will 
need LOTS of help from you guys.  Please feel free to send me ANYTHING you think 
would help me or contact me offline.
     Hope the rest of you are safe for now! :)
