It’s an honor for me to start this new chapter in my career as the Future Ready and Project Connect Spokesperson, along with a dynamic group of people who share my passion for libraries, learning and the children we serve. And with all of you! Together, we will make a difference!
Follett and Project Connect are committed to helping educators and librarians lead beyond the library. There is now a complete set of PD opportunities. These online courses promote innovative school library models, helping you address critical educational challenges with a future ready approach.
Instructional partnership, personalized professional learning, curation of resources and tools, and #ParkwayMakes (makerspace) are some of the elements I include to support librarians as they build capacity, impact student learning, and lead beyond the library during this digital transformation.
Project Connect, formed by Follett to advocate for librarians to serve as leaders in their district & schools, will be debuting a set of PD online courses this month. Designed for school and district librarians, these courses give librarians tangible skills needed in a future-ready world.
