I’ve grown as a school library advocate and leader because of the opportunities I’ve had through AASL. Connecting with AASL empowers school librarians to become stronger leaders, instructional partners, information specialists, teachers, and program administrators. Students ultimately benefit from your growth as a school librarian through participation in AASL. I look forward to collaborating with school librarians across the nation as chair of the Supervisor’s Section.”
