How do you describe yourself? Love kids, teens, technology. Like to chart your own course. Can tell Twitter from Tumblr and John Green from Blue Balliett, and use STEM and storytime in the same sentence. Know your way around ebooks and eresources. Can go from science fair projects to princess books, “four-and-twenty blackbirds in a pie” to Raspberry pi, and back again without batting an eye. Can recommend a great book for a kid who’s read everything Rick Riordan ever wrote, and have a thoughtful discussion with a parent on using digital technology with his/her toddler.
How do you describe your dream job? Progressive. Fun. Kids. Teens. Connecting. Imagining. Reinventing. Innovating.
