Trauma-Sensitive Instruction and Leadership in Schools

As schools continue working through the current pandemic, lots of conversation turns to the challenges of the time and the difficulty students have experienced related to trauma. However, let’s be perfectly clear – prior to the pandemic, many of our students were facing challenging and stressful home lives. As school leaders, we can instill in our staff an understanding of the importance of noticing changes in our children and working together to address these changes.

STEM Education Needs to Go Beyond the Employment Gap

Once seen as a place reserved for the school “Geeks,” STEM clubs and Makerspaces are now drawing a variety of students. In 2009, I started my first STEM Club at a local K-8 school and within a few years I had multiple summer camps running, hosting monthly segments on our NBC station, offering weekend workshops at the Microsoft Store, and participating on committees focused around STEM and workforce development.

With nearly 50 campuses and more than 45,000 students, Alief Independent School District (ISD) in Texas must know at any moment where its technology devices, components, and library resources are located.

Inventory Power in the Palm of Your Hand

Whether it’s from school-to-school, classroom-to-classroom, or school-to-home with students, resources move around a lot during a school year. With the end of another year right around the corner, it’s time to find out what you still have in your schools, and what may be missing or misplaced. The Inventory feature in Follett Destiny® makes it quick and easy to tell you what books and materials you have, and where they are (or should be).

Superintendent of Schools Becomes Librarian for the Day

When Dr. Mullins, Superintendent of Brevard Public Schools, showed up to be Librarian for the Day, I was ready to let our students and our program shine. I quickly gave him a tour of the space and then showed him each of our Makerspace stations for the day, the challenge activities for each station and explained how those challenges would change class-by-class.
