How You Doin?

I love hearing from my PLN & visiting different cities, states, & countries spreading the Daring Librarian ed tech transliteracy and transparency revolution message! Even though I am a Teacher-Librarian, I do believe my (sometimes irreverent, humorous, & approachable) message goes beyond the library and school walls and is applicable for all subject areas and levels of education and ed tech. As a former member of the ISTEBoard of Directors, I proudly represent ALL PK-12 educators! PRESS BIO Below.
