About Me


The Unschooled Librarian was born of a need to compile and develop my thoughts about libraries, school media centers, books, technology, the International Baccalaureate and my professional development.  My experiences as a learner and educator have instilled a deep belief in life-long learning and a commitment to a different kind of growth –  through personal inquiry, passion, project-based learning, and art experiences.

“I believe that we learn best when we, not others are deciding what we are going to learn, and when we are choosing the people, materials, and experiences from which we will be learning”.  John Holt
