MLIS 2012
Teacher Librarian
Piedmont High School at the Ambassador Christopher Steven’s Memorial Library
Piedmont, CA USA

What I am doing now.

Besides all the usual daily tasks, I handle the textbooks, write Grant’s, teach research lessons. I was on our WASC Leadership Committee for the last 3 years and led the Assessment Team meetings. I was the Producer for the famous 53rd Annual Bird Calling Contest. I am the advisor for the Asian Student Union. I am assisting a vice principal to update our school and district safety plan.

We support 1:1 Chromebooks for our 840 students and have a popup tech desk at lunch. We have a test center, the publications office, and two conference rooms. We also allow students to eat lunch in the library. It is a sometimes noisy, but always busy, vital library and collaboration space.

I belong to ALA, YALSA, CSLA and presented on supporting a Chromebook program at the 2018 CSLA conference.

What are the most valuable skills I use in my job?

Friendly attitude, always willing to pitch in to help teachers, students, and administrators. Multitasking.  Grant writing. Combing neighborhood websites for low-cost chairs and beanbags to make our library cosy.
