Wrap up. Week 14

These are my thoughts on being a teacher librarian. They are from the ALIA/ASLA professional standards but I consider them to be a perfect example of what I have learnt these 14 weeks in my Teacher Librarianship course. Some big shoes to fill! 🙂

Teacher librarians support and implement the vision of their school communities through advocating and building effective library and information services and programs that contribute to the development of lifelong learners. Within the broad fields of education and librarianship, teacher librarians are uniquely qualified. This is valuable because curriculum knowledge and pedagogy are combined with library and information management knowledge and skills.
