HS Librarian in Albemarle County Public Schools, VA

After being a public librarian in Houston, I spent 13 years as a K-5 school librarian. I'm now at Western Albemarle HS, and am looking into new ways to encourage students to transform the space, join social media and design crews, and tinker with making and publishing. I'm active on Twitter and Pinterest, have published and presented in several arenas, and when I get stuck in meetings, I think about tunnel books and how to add circuits.
