PYP and the Teacher Librarian: Job Like Day

PYP TEACHER LIBRARIAN: JOB LIKE DAY
Slide3

 

 

 

 

 

 

The job of the Teacher Librarian in a PYP school is hard to explain to someone who is not familiar with a contemporary library in an educational setting.

This library does not look like the cliched ‘read a book’ to children and discuss it situation. This is just one component to the learning engagements that will occur.

Slide5

 

 

 

 

 

 

PYP Teacher Librarians  are adding value to the teaching and learning experiences of those in the school community.

The library and the role of the Teacher Librarian  has reading and literature promotion embedded in the teaching and learning at the core.

It is also is about classroom teaching, planning, collaboration, mentoring and training.

It does include all the Essential Elements of the PYP, just like a PYP classroom teacher has to consider  BUT it also is about visioning, resourcing, budgeting, collection management AND changing culture and attitudes.

It is a role that embraces change and challenge.

It is about Educational Leadership!

Slide4

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above all it is about supporting and challenging others to be life-long learners and supporting them on the learning journey.

St Andrews will host a ‘Job like day’ later in the term.

This below is just a snippet of the what the day beholds.

OUR CORE VALUES @ SALC Making Connections INTEGRITY

Making Connections INTEGRITY

Integrity – ‘The Spirit of Honour’

“We aim to demonstrate integrity in our relationships with those in our own and wider community. We believe integrity is at the core of how others see us and as such, seek to be hold fast to what is good, by being honest, fair, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in everything we do. Integrity means we do the right thing and make the right choices, even when no one is watching. When we practise integrity, there is no difference between our behaviour and what we know to be right.”

Titus 2:7 – ‘In everything set them an example by doing what is good’
