Big round of applause to our amazing October ninjas for some fabulous responses last month. Now we welcome a new batch of November Ninjas!
Shelley has worked in library services in Connecticut since 2001. She earned her MLS in 2009. As a public children’s librarian for 8 years, she does weekly storytimes with three different age groups ages 10 months to 5 years. They are multimedia classes that incorporate apps, music, movement, books, and parachute games.
In December 2013, she was hired as a children’s technology librarian consultant at a local Magnet school helping middle school children learn about giving storytimes and using apps to create their own books. She has also been a guest blogger for ALSC. Her pinterest page is here and her blog is here!
