Defining Future Ready By Reflecting On The Past....eSchool News Article For All Of Us


There is a new article written by Britten Follett on eSchool News that I would like to share with everyone. 

It's called Defining Future Ready By Reflecting On The Past and can be found here.

As part of the Future Ready Librarian team, along with Britten, my partner Mark Ray, the Alliance for Excellent Education and others, it is a honor to work in this field and within my school as a teacher librarian. 

As I shared with Britten for this article, 

Librarian and Future Ready Librarian spokesperson Miller explains what it means to be a Future Ready Librarian as we emerge from the global pandemic. “Being a Future Ready Librarian means that I am continuously looking forward to how I can be the best at what I do, and what I can do to make my school community, teachers, and students ready for today’s educational world and for the future. Future Ready librarians play a critical role in the strategic work of schools and educational systems as we lead from the library; inspire and support the reading lives of both students and teachers; empower students as creators and learners; curate content; instill innovative instructional practices; build and foster community partnerships; and more.”

Miller continued, “We, as Future Ready Librarians, serve as the heart of the school, inspiring those around us to embrace the change we can bring through our roles as librarians and as leaders. Within the last year, as the world and education has shifted, librarians have become stronger, more innovative, and have taken the lead. It has been an exciting time for us and one that will empower us to shine even brighter. This is our time to shine, friends!”  

It is definitely our time to shine!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for us, friends.
