I have been a school librarian since 2016. During this time, I have flipped two school libraries from old, dusty libraries into 21st-century learning hubs full of students, excitement, and learning! My true passion is teaching teachers, so I always look forward to teaching PD and expanding my learning circle to include fellow educators! I also am an online course facilitator for the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teachers (NCCAT), where I build continuing education courses, and lead professional development for teachers across the state.
I believe the best learning occurs when students are engaged, empowered and enthusiastic in their learning. I seek to encourage students to leisurely read for entertainment and to feel confident in their library space, while I encourage teachers to actively participate in PD and step outside their comfort zone to integrate new tech tools into their classroom learning. I strongly believe the best school library media programs include a flexible schedule, a welcoming library space, collaborative teaching strategies, 21st century skills and a passionate, energetic librarian!
