PSLA / CFF Pre-Conference
High School Librarians and Technology Integration Coaches Partnership Meeting
April 15th, 2010: 8:30 am - 1 pm
Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center
Goal: Help promote and deepen partnerships between instructional coaches and librarians.

Both coaches and librarians are great resources to their faculty, staff, and students. Combining these efforts should bring their work to a whole new level and help sustain their positions. This workshop is designed so that these two positions (coach/librarian) will come together as a collaborative team to make their mark on instruction and increase student achievement. See the power and possibilities.
