"Working as a librarian and as an administrator in lower education and now as a teacher and researcher in a university graduate program, I have a fresh appreciation of both worlds. I maintain close ties with field practitioners and strive to involve them in the research and scholarship of our profession. By challenging myself to place ideas in larger contexts, I also share the excitement of my own learning with both students and colleagues and invite them to join me in a free exchange of ideas. My specific goals are:
- Improving the quality of school librarianship preparation in the state; and
- Promoting information literacy instruction in our school communities locally, nationally and internationally."
