Hi everyone! Glad to be joining the community!
I'm a teen/tween librarian (who has a masters degree in meteorology and makes soap as a side business...bet you don't see that combination often!) working in rural, upstate New York. When I say rural, I mean no stop lights and as many (or more) cows than people in town.
In addition to being rural, our local economy isn't the greatest. A lot of kids rely on school for 2 out of 3 meals a day. Many don't have supervision after school. Drugs are a problem in our community, both in the youth and the adults.
I hope to connect with at least some of these kids, engage their creative minds, and hopefully put them on the track for something better. LittleBits is a big part of my plans, as I am developing a self-guided, gamified, continuous LittleBits program for our youth. I am hoping to kick off the program in the next few weeks and will hopefully watch it grow from there.
I can't wait to get to know everyone more and share with you what my kiddos come up with!
