It was an honor to share my experiences as a teacher librarian in the Publishers Weekly article, Pandemic Best Practices.
Craig Seasholes, Elissa Malespina, Fran Glick and myself shared what our work looked like during the pandemic and our time with remote learning in our school community.
“I’ve never worked so much in my entire life! It’s been crazy, but fun,” says Shannon McClintock Miller, innovation director of instructional technology and library media at Van Meter Community School in Van Meter, Iowa, about how she’s been adjusting to changes in her job since the Covid-19 outbreak. “From the very start, I feel like Van Meter didn’t miss a beat,” she says. “Once we got word from the state and decided as a district what we were going to do, we were ready. I’m so proud of everybody. Being a 1:1 district [which provides one device per student] for so many years as well as being a forward-thinking district and having awesome mindsets has really helped.”
