One of our Monroe One region School Librarians, Julianne Westrich (K-3 Librarian in West Irondequoit), was selected as the Iditarod's 2023 Teacher on the Trail. Congratulations Juli!
What is the Teacher on the Trail? It is a unique opportunity for one selected educator each year, to enter into a one year agreement to teach beyond the traditional classroom walls via Internet and to be involved in a project that reaches students around the world.
As the 2023 Teacher on the Trail, Juli is expected to post three times a month to a blog (which she has already been doing since June of last year). Once she is in Alaska and on the trail, she will be required to post each day that she is there.
You can read her blog posts here. Not only do they offer great insight, but great classroom ideas and great book suggestions too!
Juli is the first School Librarian to be selected for this competitive and thrilling experience! She leaves for Alaska on February 20th to join the trail, and she comes back on March 21st. We are so excited to hear all about her adventures!
Monroe One BOCES SLS has purchased additional audiobooks and ebooks for simultaneous use. These titles will be available for one year, and potentially more. This collection holds over 600 elementary titles, and over 170 titles at the secondary level.
Simultaneous use (AKA "Always Available") ebooks/audiobooks are those that can be borrowed by more than one person at a time, so if you want your whole class to read the same book at the same time, this is a perfect solution.
The Monroe One BOCES School Library System (SLS) supports 10 public school districts and 15 private schools on the east side of Rochester, NY. It is our mission to provide equal access resource sharing to all students, teachers, and staff and to provide professional development and resources for school librarians.
