This PLN will establish a collaborative community of educators, advancing the practices of innovative librarians in our schools. Participants will focus on collaborating and sharing common professional inquiries on their practices in the role of the school librarian, diversifying collections, collaborating and co-teaching, and developing innovative library spaces.
This PLN is ideal for all librarians and educators who seek to expand their understanding of the evolving leadership role the teacher librarian facilitates in schools. These sessions are the junction of the practical and aspirational practices in the international community. Participants are welcome to share and have some great take-aways to adapt to their libraries. Educators from Pre-K to Grade 12 are all welcome.
