Be a Change Agent!!

The Role of the Library Media Specialist as a Change Agent

What is a change agent?

1. A change agent must live in the future, not the past.

2. A change agent is passionate about their position and that passion is contagious.

3. A change agent has the innate ability to self-motivate.

4. A change agent must have the ability to understand others.

(From Dennis Stevenson on the Toolbox for IT blog)
