Our full-time professional librarians value authenticity, agency, agility and assessment in a relationship-based approach to our Library programs and services.
We strive for authenticity in:
Ourselves as people and professionals;
Our values as educators and librarians;
Our motivation as teachers and learners; and
Our expression as thought leaders and creative questioners.
We honor agency when working:
1:1 with students;
In the classroom as instructors;
As partners with faculty and staff; and
In the JK-12 community as members.
We model agility as:
Mentors to individual students;
Guides in the classroom;
Innovators for curriculum; and
Compasses for new directions.
We conduct ongoing assessment through:
Self-reflective on pedagogy;
Thoughtfulness with student work;
Mindfulness of barriers to learning; and
Honesty with ourselves and others.
