Knowledge Quest

I was chosen by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) to be a monthly contributor to the online Knowledge Quest blog in mid-2018. My blog posts are available to AASL members across the nation. My work has been well-received, and I was asked to continue my contributions through the 2019-2020 school year.

School Library Connection (SLC)

I have also been published in School Library Connection (SLC).

  • "Virtuous Cycles and Death Spirals: The Importance of Being an Active Collaborator" was published in the April 2019 online edition. The article emphasizes the importance of school librarians taking an active role in seeking out teacher collaborations.

  • "The Janus Decision: A Chance for School Librarian Leadership" was published in both the print and online editions of the October 2019 issue. This article focuses on the importance of SLMS advocacy and leadership in the wake of the June 2018 Supreme Court decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, a court case which fundamentally undermined education unions.

I also was fortunate enough to be part of a Knowledge Quest article about the new AASL standards for school librarians.
