Assistant Professor of Practice
Throughout my library career, I have looked into the faces of young people and been nourished by their sense of wonder and enthusiasm for learning. As a librarian, I have served these young people by providing library programs and services that are their right: an environment conducive to learning; equitable access to resources that reflect their diverse needs and interests; effective instruction that builds independent learning skills; and opportunities for sharing with others.
As director of school library programs in New York City, with 1.1 million students and 1700 schools, I used my leadership and mentoring skills to focus on building a nurturing and supportive community and strong guidance for all the school librarians. Together, we established effective school library programs and prepare our students to be successful in school and beyond.
In January 2012, I became an Assistant Professor of Practice at Syracuse University. In this position, I have the opportunity to impact the profession of librarianship through my teaching, research, and writing.
Libraries are on the cusp of greatness. We must seize the moment by re-defining ourselves and capturing the exciting possibilities offered by technology and social media; the explosion of information; and the challenges of maintaining a strong democracy while nourishing the expression of diverse viewpoints. Librarians must be instrumental in leading the transformation of libraries, and in that process, we will transform our communities.
I was elected 2012-2013 President-Elect of the American Library Association in May 2012. During my 2013-2014 presidential term, I will lead ALA to build on and continue the Association's support for transforming libraries with a special emphasis on literacy, community engagement, and innovation practices that enable all librarians to empower the voices of their community.
