Instructor/Presenter Bio

Jennifer LaGarde (aka library girl!) is a Librarian Ambassador and Education Road Warrior!  As an Educator on Loan for the NC Department of Public Instruction, she travels across the land working with school librarians, classroom teachers, principals, superintendents - literally ANYONE who needs help building or making the most of a 21st century school library. With over 17 years experience in education as a classroom teacher, teacher librarian and district level leader, Jennifer has been nationally recognized for her contribution to school librarianship and education in general. In 2011, Jennifer was awarded the "I Love My Librarian Award" by the American Library Association, The Carnegie Corporation of New York and The New York Times. She was also named a 2011 "Mover and Shaker" by Library Journal.  And in 2013 she was selected as one of five teacher librarians (nationally) finalists for the first-ever Bammy Award for outstanding service in the area of school librarianship.  Jennifer is the author of the award winning blog The Adventures of Library Girl where she proves you don’t have to be super hero to be a teacher librarian, but having a cape sure helps.”

She also really doesn't enjoy talking about herself in the 3rd person. :)
