SLJ Job Satisfaction Survey as Advocacy

Make sure you check out the newest SLJ survey of librarians (school and public) about what they perceive as the pros and cons of their jobs.  There is also some interesting data about how many TLs work in more than one building, how many hours they work, and what their salaries are.

This article could be used as an advocacy piece - by collecting what Teacher Librarians across the country are feeling about our jobs past, current, and future, we can talk up the things we want to continue to do and the things we hope to be working on the future. Having a view of of our programs like this can help us create and communicate a clearer vision of the library for our stakeholders.
