I worked during the academic school year (August to June) for 119 days each year; normally, 3 days for 8 hours per day each week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). My schedule was flexible, and I earned overtime on many occasions. I had unpaid vacation for a week around Thanksgiving, two weeks for Christmas, one week in February, one week at Easter, and most of the summer from June 2 to August 15.
From 1999-2005, I was employed in a certificated position as the District Librarian. I managed five elementary school libraries, textbooks, and computer labs. I took two elementary education credential classes per semester at California State University at Chico during this period, so as to keep the certificated position.
From 2006-1916, I was employed in a classified management position as the Technology and Media Services Supervisor. I managed five school libraries, computer labs, and textbooks and consumables for 2,300 students in grades K-8. I also wrote many grants, and did the budget management for grants totaling $4.2 million to this district. I was also a certified substitute teacher during this period. We opened four new libraries in this district during my tenure there. My office was at the Maywood Middle School Library.
