Mrs. Hallett

I have been a librarian for over 19 years. While my past experience has been in higher education, I am delighted to be working at a school valuing curriculum integration of 21st-century skills. I partner with teachers in all content areas to integrate digital literacy, research skills, creation and innovation in the classroom. As a librarian, my role is to teach our students to become discerning information consumers. In academia, I have worked too often with students who trust the first website found through a Google search, assuming it provides accurate and reliable information. The skills necessary for critically evaluating, assessing and utilizing information are vital for success in the technology-driven, global world of the 21st century.
