Exposure to different parts of IT

By ryn_gillis ·
I have been in my current job for a year now and I work the help desk for a small school district. I have picked up a lot of little tidbits of information and vastly improved my soft skills and communication skills. However, I want to go to school and before I go, I want to be exposed to as many different job or parts of IT as I can. The problem I have is that our entire department is five people, and the network admin is far to busy to have me job shadow him to learn what he does day to day, besides put out fires.
How can I see what a database admin or a systems analyst (or whomever) does before I start school? I suppose this is a social networking question more than a technical one.
