  2. 2. About Me • High school librarian at Olathe East High School (2,100+ students) • School librarian for past 17 years • Earned PhD last year from Emporia State University’s School of Library and Information Management • I studied how teens in school libraries use technology devices (smartphones, for one) to bypass required filtering so that they can interact with information on their own terms • Teach graduate school part time for my university • Continually learning from staff and students, especially in the area of technology • My personal teaching goal is to help grow lifelong learners who are also confident, savvy information users. • My father just graduated from college with his fifth degree, in fine arts, at the age of 82!
