Librarians Begin A Year of Innovation


Librarians Begin a Year of Innovation

Klein Librarians started this school year as true Promise2Purpose Investors. The teacher-librarians are working on building a strong sense of community in Klein and incorporating High Quality Teaching Elements for every librarian. To accomplish this they formed two new guiding teams this year. One team is a mentoring team to help and support first and second year librarians. The second team is a PLC Leadership team that will lead monthly learning opportunities  at the KMPC.

 Librarians plan to reimagine learning, build community, and cultivate talent in order to be the catalyst to move Klein’s Library Program forward this year. Klein librarians will form  flexible working teams that are supported by their passions and strengths. These teams will work on developing  Digital Citizenship curriculum,  research readiness skills, instruction for staff and students about online resources, technology resources, reading incentives and more.

 One goal this year is to target professional learning by creating and leading Klein’s first Librarian EdCamp in November: #EdCampKleinLibraries. This event will  nurture unique skills that will  empower our librarians as leaders on their campuses. The  long term goal is to lead the neighboring school library community  by hosting an EdCamp in the spring, putting  Klein at the forefront of librarian professional development in the northwest  Houston area.

 We encourage everyone to visit your school library and witness the innovative changes that are underway!
