As an author, one of the most rewarding experiences is being invited into schools and community spaces
to help young writers
find their voices.
As a sign language instructor, one of my greatest pleasures is helping parents and caregivers teach their babies how to communicate using signs before they can talk
. In essence, I'm helping babies find their voices.
This past year, I've invested a significant amount of time and energy advocating for school libraries
. One of the most satisfying aspects of this experience has been seeing students find and use their voice to advocate for themselves.
Over the past few weeks, students have attended a variety of public meetings to advocate for Strong School Libraries staffed with certified teacher librarians. Here is a photo essay that captures the variety of young people who have added their voices to this important issue:
|Public Testimony Delivered by Beaverton School District 2nd|

I hope you will consider adding YOUR VOICE to this important issue. You can find lots of inspiration and information about the value of Strong School Libraries here
