Global Connections: New Zealand and Vermont
"Unfortunately, I assumed that librarians in New Zealand had the same training as those in Vermont. I made the assumption that they were also teachers, worked collaboratively with teachers on 21st Century skills and implementation.
This was not the case. What I found was many bright and beautiful rooms with little or no support. Out of all the schools, I visited, I spoke to one teacher librarian who was paid as a teacher and actually taught skills. The others that I met had various backgrounds with a variety of training, but no one else that I met actually worked collaboratively with teachers to deliver 21st Century skills."
