4. How rewarding is a career as a school librarian?
A very multifaceted position, a career as a school librarian is the most rewarding and enriching career in the education field! As school librarians we are able to share in the growth of every student in the building as students learn information-literacy and problem-solving skills. We also work on several different levels with other teachers, both in professional development settings and collaborative classroom situations. We have built relationships with students who have rediscovered their lost love of reading because we have spent time finding the perfect books for them. When a
student runs into the library, clutching a book, grinning from ear to ear, saying “Thank you, thank you! I haven’t read a book this good since third grade!” we know we have encouraged one more lifelong reader.
