CUE Guest Blog Editors
We have reached out to several leaders from within our community and asked them to bring their perspective to the CUE Blog. Over several months, they’ll be inviting contributors and adding their own special spin to our beloved blog.
Jane Lofton is the Teacher Librarian at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach. She is a Past President of California School Library Association (CSLA), a Google Certified Teacher (GTAMTV14) and Educator, and an American Association of School Librarians Best Websites for Teaching and Learning Committee member. She is also a member of CUE, ISTE, and the American Library Association and its Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) Division and American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Division. She is a confessed conference “junky” and a regular presenter at CSLA and CUE conferences.
Jane is passionate about school libraries, their ability to change lives and expand student experiences beyond the school walls, and the role that strong school libraries play in student achievement. She loves sharing her passion for reading, research, and effective and appropriate uses of technology to enhance learning and productivity, and working with students, teachers, and parents. She is an active participant on social media, and recently taught an online class on getting started on Twitter (learn2tweet.edublogs.org) for CSLA members. You can find her on Twitter at @jane_librarian; her personal blog, “Jane Lofton’s Adventures in School Libraryland” at janelofton.com; school library blog, and on Google+ at google.com/+JaneLofton.
When not working or connecting with her personal learning network, an all-too-rare event for this workaholic and PLN addict, she loves to read (print, ebooks, and audiobooks), travel, cook, walk (especially by the beach), attend plays, and tinker with graphics.
