Welcome to my page! Feel free to explore the rest of the library page for resources! The goals of my library program are to promote collaboration, technology, a love of reading, and information literacy skills in our school.
I am from Elma, NY and received my Bachelors in Education from Clarion University of PA in 2011 and my Masters of Science in Library Science from Clarion in 2014.
Outside of our district, I am super involved in a variety of other education projects and programs. Here's a few that I've completed in the past few years:
*PSLA's Emerging Leader Program (2014-15)
*taught at a summer camp in Poland through the Kosciusko Foundation (2018)
Currently, I am:
*participating in the REALISD project through University at Buffalo and University of West Georgia
*Co-Coodinator of the Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award committee
*Middle School Coodinator for the Connected Library Consortium
*Microsoft Innovative Education Expert
*The organizer of #PALibChat on Twitter
Also, because I believe that writing is a muscle that should be stretched, I occasionally write blog posts/book reviews/tech reviews at this website: https://middleschoollibrarianfromtheblacklagoon.wordpress.com/
