This week I had the pleasure of interviewing with my Mentor Librarian, Kay Gooch. My big take-aways are that your library program can be as book-centric or tech centric as you want it to be–provided you had already developed a strong library program. As a new hire I imagine one would be much more beholden to the principal. Also just the value of sheer warmth and likability on making a library program work–Kay is certainly that! I also found it interesting to hear her take on “debates” in the world of teacher-librarianism and the “boots on the ground” perspective to some of the new theory I’ve been learning.
