"Publishing on ReadWriteThink.org has given me the opportunity to showcase successful collaboration by classroom teachers and teacher librarians and the resulting exemplary student work. I appreciate having this forum to share my teaching experiences and learn from other educators' empowering literacy lessons."
Judi Moreillon began her career teaching fifth grade in a school that did not have a professional school librarian. This inspired her to earn a master's degree in library science. She has served as a teacher–librarian in high school and elementary school libraries, coteaching in every content area at all grade levels. She also served as a literacy coach at the elementary level. Judi earned a doctorate in language, reading, and culture with a focus on media and literacy at the University of Arizona. She is a member of the International Reading Association.
In her current role as a literacies and libraries consultant, Judi facilitates professional development for educators. She believes that classroom–library collaboration is key to providing students with learning experiences that incorporate 21st-century skills.
