At Erin School we love to READ! As the Library Media Specialist I teach information literacy to students in grades PreK-5. I have earned degrees in Elementary Education and School Library Science at UW-Whitewater and have attended graduate school at Cardinal Stritch University and UW-Milwaukee. I am Google and Intel Educator trained and enjoy finding creative ways to connect technology with reading.
The goal of the Erin School library media program is to provide a wide range of instructional and leisure reading materials, and to ensure that all students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. Students in grades K4 through grade 5 are introduced to a variety of literature through weekly story time, book selection, check out, and story extension activities. Emphasis is placed on supporting the reading and language arts curriculum standards. Information literacy skills: locating, evaluating and effectively using needed information, are woven throughout the elementary library program by means of collaboration with colleagues. Students in middle grades 6-8 utilize the library on an as needed basis during their reading/language arts block. Middle school students select reading materials with the assistance of their core reading teacher and the school librarian.
