What exactly does a teacher-librarian do anyway? If you look into the job description, you might discover that it's not your grandmother's library anymore! Our job is much more complex in today's world of multiple literacies. Teacher-librarians are media specialists with knowledge of the latest forms of technology and communication. We foster a love of literacy in all its forms. When we guide our students through inquiry and exploration, we teach them to look at the world with a thoughtful and critical lens. As instructional partners, we curate resources for teachers, co-teach dynamic and engaging lessons, and compliment units being taught in the classroom with activities and exploration in the learning commons. We host lunch n' learns and pro-d seminars to teach new technology to our peers. We connect the school learning commons to the community-at-large. While doing all of this, we run the day to day workings of a busy library, which can already feel like shovelling the sidewalk in a blizzard! While it's challenging, it's also extremely rewarding. Plus, you get to be around books all day!
