Help Wanted Area in the Classroom!

 I have created a "Help Wanted" area in my classroom:) The idea came to me after going through a few of my books, and noticing a few that were damaged or in the place. I have seen the idea to use a "Book Hospital" on Pinterest (where else?!) and decided to incorporate that into a job for a class librarian. The jobs I chose to post are shown below. I also decided to make this kind of like a real application process, where applicants have to fill out a form to be considered for the job. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of responses I get. :)
This job posting (for a student editor) says:
If you are a person who likes writing and helping others, then this job is for you! I am looking for people who can help revise other students’ papers.  To apply for this job you must have your rough draft and final copy completed. Please complete the following questionnaire and return it to Mrs. Watkins.
