For Teachers

In a school library program promoting teaching for learning, students follow an inquiry process, engage in deep learning, understand when information is needed, have high levels of reading literacy, and become lifelong learners.

The Library Media Specialist is here to partner with you and assist with...

  1. Collaboration among members of the learning community and encourage learners to be independent, lifelong users and producers of ideas and information
  2. Reading as a foundational skill for learning, personal growth, and enjoyment
  3. Instruction that addresses multiple literacies, including information literacy, media literacy, visual literacy, and technology literacy
  4. Modeling an inquiry-based approach to learning and the information search process


Additionally, the school library media specialist guides the school library media program through regular assessment of student learning to ensure the program is meeting its goals.
