“You are a change agent. You’re a curriculum person. You’re an instruction person. You’re a professional development person. Sell your value. Show your value. That’s where you make a difference.”
 – Dr. Bill Chapman, Superintendent, Jarrell Independent School District, TX

As Dr. Chapman stated above, school librarians are change agents. And, the 355 administrators we surveyed shared similar thoughts. Join our live webinar to discover these insights and more. Hear from experts at Gale, and innovative administrators and librarians who have successfully partnered with colleagues to better serve their students through the library. You’ll learn new approaches and action steps as we explore 6 of 8 best practices, such as how to embrace chaos; start small, think big; zero in on outcomes; and reach out to teachers.

Plus, you’ll receive a complimentary insights brief detailing all best practices, including guidance from dozens of other educators, just for attending!
