By Sue Gettlin | February 15, 2012

Kathleen Jackson, ‘12, M.A., Library Science (candidate), was recently named a “Student Librarian of the year” by the Pennsylvania School Library Association. Kathleen, who entered education after a long career in marketing, believes education in the U.S. is at a critical juncture, and a strong school library program offers resources to tackle obstacles in education. “Teacher-librarians have a unique vantage point in education. In a sense, we are heads of the ‘information and inquiry’ department, seeing all the student in school, and presiding over materials that cover every possible subject area.”
