Staff Development

As the Media Resource Specialist, or Librarian, I love that I can help students of ALL ages learn and grow and this includes the teachers, staff and administration.  I know that this group of learners is very busy, with diverse needs and levels of comfort with technology.  With this in mind I act as a formal presenter of staff development, a resource for help as needed, a coach for professional development.  I work with teachers to meet their needs individually, and as a team/small group.  I have presented numerous times to the entire staff of my school and also planned and presented entire district professional development.  

 

Examples of staff development:

Sometimes professional development needs to be short and simple and presented during teachers only downtime.
