School Library Media Specialist
Great Valley High School
Hello from Southeast Pennsylvania! This is my fifth year as a Library Media Specialist, and (barring this weird pandemic version of the job) its the best job I can imagine! I most enjoy teaching media literacy, utilizing social media for advocacy and community building, and implementing antiracism and equity work into all of our collection & program development efforts. I'm the kind of librarian who loves weeding, hates "shushing," and who believes that graphic novels and audiobooks count as "real reading." I'm the kind of librarian who loves technology (except when its being a jerk), avoids reading "classics" like her life depends on it, and thinks social media is the single greatest tool in our "librarian advocacy toolbox." I enjoy the absolute privilege of teaching, learning from, and working closely with teenagers every day and there is no other group of humans I'd rather spend my time with. They are the most curious, clever, silly, outrageous, compassionate, challenging, adaptive, talented, fearless, creative, and interesting people on the planet. I see the world differently when I see it through their eyes, and what I see gives me hope for our future.
