Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the MSLA (Massachusetts School Library Association) Conference. I watched our own Instructional Technology Specialist, Dan Callahan and Library Media Specialist, Laura D'Elia do a presentation talking about our Library and Technology Center, our 1:1 4th and 5th Grade iPad initiative, and student progress at Pine Glen Elementary School.

Dennis Villano, Burlington Director of Technology Integration and I were asked to be on a panel discussion for the conference titled "Why Invest In Your School Library."

We are so fortunate to have a full time librarian at Pine Glen. A library media specialist is key to matching nonfiction books for students to read to the Common Core Curriculum. Also, with so many digital sources to gather information a library media specialist is vital to help guide students in doing research and being good digital citizens in our community.
