A School Media Evangelist

It's not just evangelicals who have the power of conversion! I've just come from Dr. Ross Todd's presentation "School Libraries Work!" and I want to change the world--my world, at least! He was "naughty" and he was chastising, but he set a fire alight under the assembled school librarians he was talking to.

The main import of his message was--don't complain about the principals, don't work inside the box, don't see yourself and your library as the center of the universe. We are not about teaching our kids to find information--we are about teaching our kids to create new knowledge and deep understanding. Make your school library "a cesspool of intellectual discussion!"
