After years of working as the Teacher-Librarian at the junior high that I attended as a kid, I am off to new adventures at a middle school in a different school district down the road. I am also a presenter for the Bureau of Education & Research on CCSS and the School Library. I am currently serving on YALSA's Excellence in Non-Fiction Award committee, and have previously served on BFYA, Popular Paperbacks, and numerous other national committees. I also present YA lit seminars/webinars at conferences around the country. In my free time (ha, ha) I can be found watching my kids play sports...or reading...or both.
