We know where the laminator is, what books your students LOVE to read, what a Makerspace is and have some great ideas for teaching content in an engaging and interactive way.
Whether you are beginning your teaching practicum or are starting your first teaching job,
make sure connecting with your school librarian is a priority. You'll be glad you did!
