School Library Media Specialists

School library media specialists, along with those serving as school librarians, perform an array of educational and administrative tasks. They may teach students how to improve reading and research skills using a variety of pedagogical strategies such as group lessons, individualized coaching, hands-on activities and interactive instruction. They may also spend time organizing and managing print, media, and electronic resources while providing access to computers, databases, e-books and other technology. They also collaborate with content and grade level teachers in these activities while ensuring the school library is a safe place where all students can explore, create and acquire knowledge.
