Building Instructional Partnerships....Today's Future Ready Librarian Webinar Recording and Slides

I had the honor of joining six amazing teacher librarians today for the Future Ready Librarian webinar, Building Instructional Partnerships.  
Suzanna Panter, Dawn Baughman and Charmaine Norton from Tacoma Public Schools in Washington and Becky Calzada, Sandy Liptak and Zandra Lopez from Leander Independent School District in Texas joined me as we shared strategies, inspiring stories and lots of tips and resources to use when building instructional partnerships within the school community.  

You will find the video archive above and on the Alliance for Excellent Education here.

You will also find the Google Slides in the window above.  

The links to the resources such as the Future Ready Librarian Collection by Destiny and webinar archives are included in the slides too. 
Librarians, district leaders, and all educators should watch this webinar to learn more about the Future Ready Librarian program and how these librarian leaders embrace and build instructional partnerships to make a difference in their library, school community, and for the students with whom they work everyday. 
Please let us know if you have any questions by using #FutureReadyLibs on Twitter.  
And we hope you join us for the next Future Ready Librarian webinar, Cultivating Community Partnerships, on December 12 at 4:00pm EST.
