Why are connections with educators so essential to school librarians? Participants will delve into the National School Library Standards and available resources to make authentic and purposeful connections with educators. Participants will create an action plan to help them plan, record, and amplify the results of their connections.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will identify starting points to create educator connections through the National School Library Standards.
  • Participants will develop an action plan for making connections and amplifying their results to inspire more connections with other educators.
