I want to: Fulbright Specialist Program

I’ve been thinking a lot about my long-term goals recently.  Actually, I’m always thinking about my the next coolest, most awesome thing I want to do.  Working at WIS has really made me crave international experience but I love DC and can’t imagine wanting to leave.

Enter the Fulbright Specialist Program for librarians.  This seems like the perfect way to connect with schools and organizations abroad to do short term (2-6 weeks) of work in an area of specialization.  I can see myself applying in a few years as a School Librarian or Children and Young Adult Librarianship specialist.  I already have lots of contacts in the international school world through ECIS and former colleagues.  I’d love to spend some time bringing a YA collection up-to-date or re-imagining a traditional library space into a digital commons in Spain or Singapore or Nairobi.

How cool would that be?!
