A Perfect Match
Future Ready Instructional Coaches and Future Ready Librarians
Shannon McClintock Miller, Future Ready Librarian Spokesperson, K-12 District Teacher Librarian, Van Meter Community School (IA)
Brianna Hodges, Future Ready Advisor, Director of Digital Learning, Eanes School District (TX)
On February 12, 2019, Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar as part of the ongoing professional learning opportunities for school leaders.
In this webinar, panelists discussed the powerful impact that results from a partnership between instructional coaches and librarians when focus is placed not on tool or device, but instead on the learning community. They shared the examples of this partnership from the field highlighting stories, swapping tips and inspiring all of us to go back and do the same within our schools and districts.
Panelists shared how to
- Move from those awkward ‘first-date’ conversations to developing a true and powerful partnership;
- ‘Make the move’ by setting the mood through culture and connection;
- Say those THREE important words (‘LEARNING IN ACTION’) and tell the world;
- ‘Seal the deal’ with student-centered strategies.
