Many of the things that happen in my life seem as unexpected.  Librarianship is one of them.  When I was young I wished to be a firefighter, then an accountant.   At one point I considered teaching, then social work.  And finally I decided to become a librarian.  The story is pretty long.  However, the short version is simple.  I started to work in a library and got interested.


I did my B.A. at Lehman College with a major in Linguistics.  I tutored at Lehman for a while in some writing, Spanish, Linguistics, CPE, and ACT.  Then I started to work at the Lehman College Library.  I worked in periodicals, reference, circulation, and presently I am working in the Interlibrary Loan department.  I can say that I truly learned a lot from my colleagues.


My favovrite novels are Breath, Eyes, Memory by Edwidge Danticat and Kindgom of this world by Alejo Carpentier.  I love watching movies.  So far Patch Adams with Robin Williams and Legend of Bagger Vance with Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Matt Damon are on my top list.  I enjoy going to the gym, jogging, and traveling.  In the future I would like to learn ASL, French, Swimming, Piano, Martial Arts, Driving, Cooking, and all the other mundane stuff that makes life fun


If there is a cool site I would recommend to tvmaniacs and movie watchers it would be www.imdb.com

Hi, Daniel,

Oh, your list is not far off. Here is mine: sky diving (jumping off the plane) - archeaologist (at some rural site... in the sun, digging bones) - psychologist - linguist (teaching ESL) - computer software programmer - public library as a librarian - academic library as a librarian - school librarian (now) - psychologist - academia teaching. I guess I just stop here now. Who knows what is the next.

Welcome to the class! I can see from your post you have a lot of positive energy. I hope we will see your unique contributions to this class.
