I started working at the International Academy in 2001 and earned my MLIS in 2002. My school has always been a full Diploma Programme school, so my whole career has been spent as an IB librarian. Working with the IB curriculum has impacted my collection development choices.
I believe the first step in school library advocacy is in joining communities. They can be online communities or local/state/national professional communities, but it is important to be aware of what is going on in our profession. Once you have the awareness, you never know where you might end up.
This international school enjoys high levels of student engagement and literacy as a result of their progressive reading program and the efforts of the library staff. For any IB school, there is much to be gained from hearing how this school impacts literacy and reading. Check out the recording now!
