My name is Dana Hopper and I am the School Library Media Specialist. I have 14 years experience working in elementary education. After nine years of teaching, I transitioned from the classroom to the media center. I returned to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro to earn my Master of Library and Information Science degree.

This is my ninth year at Eastlawn Elementary and I am proud to be part of the Panther team. I look forward to building relationships and working with students, families, teachers, and members of our local community to promote literacy and foster a love for learning.

Library Standards

school library Standards

The American Association of School Librarians (AASL), a division of the American Library Association, is the organization that guided the development of school library standards and frameworks. Teaching these standards will help to "prepare students for life-long learning, informed decision making, a love of reading, and the use of information technologies."

For a more in-depth look at the standards, please visit AASL's standards framework, published on their website.
