Be your own best salesman! Last year I started creating bulletin boards that demonstrate what I do in the library media center. Many administrators and teachers don’t know what we do in the library. Rarely does the principal or assistant principal observe me teaching. Many probably think we mostly check out books. Help dispel that idea by showing what you do.
Create Bulletin Boards in Hallway
I take lots of photos of students as we are doing information literacy instruction. I post them in the hallway with a written description of the activity along with any performance standards that are covered during the lesson.
Document Your Instruction
Besides making known what you teach, students love to see photos of themselves and their work. Other grade levels can also see what other students are learning in the library. In these tight fiscal times when librarian positions are being cut, it helps to let others see your impact on student learning.
