Sandi Jimmerson MLS - Returns To FSU - First Time Since She Got Her Masters - Celebrates Her New Job

Ruby Diamond Auditorium
Last weekend Sandi Jimmerson drove the 5 hours to Tallahassee after teaching a full day of classes at her new library at Citrus Ridge: A Civics Academy.  In 2009 - Sandi earned her Master of Library Science degree at Florida State. She was selected to participate in Project LEAD from a long list of applicants. The committee was selecting exemp
lary teachers that showed high leadership qualities. The Federal IMLS program was designed to take these proven leaders - and turn them into school library media specialists that are school leaders. It was a full scholarship.

Sandi was a geography teacher for 15 years. She was very popular with students and her fellow teachers. When the Project LEAD opportunity knocked - Sandi answered. Most of the graduate level courses were taught online - although some classes were offered in the summer on campus in Tallahassee.

This fall Sandi took a new job opening up a brand new library in a brand new school. She can see the Disney EPCOT ball from her school. 

We have been pestering Sandi to come visit campus and go to a football game. She chose the Boston  College game weekend because it had an extra day due to Veterans Day. 

It was a full weekend. She stayed 3 nights in our guest room. Thursday FSU won  a girls basketball game for her. Friday night was the FSU v Boston College football game - another blowout. We were lucky - someone gave us 5 FREE tickets to the game - just 5 rows behind the BC  bench. Next was a special screening of "Citizen Soldiers" in ruby Diamond Auditorium. Finally - FSU boys basketball defeated Jacksonville State.
