I am Karin Schreier Hallett. I have been a librarian for 19 years, most recently as Director of Library and Media and Grade 3-5 Academic Coordinator at the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School in Jacksonville, Florida. MJGDS is a Jewish K-8 school, which has been implementing 21st-century skills into its curriculum. I partner with teachers in all content areas to integrate digital literacy, research skills, creation and innovation in the classroom. Prior to my employment at MJGDS, I have held librarian positions in university and community college settings. I love exploring all aspects of liquid literacy!
My Mission as an Educator
My professional mission is to provide a nurturing, safe, and stimulating environment for exploration of the information universe. I strive to instill in my students habits of lifelong reading, thinking, and learning, while developing ambition, curiosity and personal excellence. I aim to assist teachers and students in developing the competencies necessary for accessing and evaluating information from diverse sources. Above all, I seek to empower all learners to the best of my ability.
