Teacher librarian

Glenrosa Middle School

I am currently the teacher librarian at Glenrosa Middle School.  I am responsible for programming, planning, and purchasing as well as teaching. My flagship event is the Human Library, which I have run for 4 years now.  I have taught lessons on metacognition, questioning skills, researching, and body image among many other topics. I have taught English 9 most of the years that I've been here, and this year I also started teaching a course that I've created from scratch: Maker 7.
