Jan MacWatters’ mission to redefine the role of a teacher-librarian is the result of 28 years of teaching and library experience as a military wife. She is focused on helping students learn to ask the right questions and find the best answers with ease and accuracy. MacWatters is aware that learning to understand the increasing role of information in the 21st century goes hand in hand with learning to express their own perspective creatively. As such, she also teaches how to use a variety of readily available technologies. Her students learn to plan and manage a research project while honing their time-management skills. She also guides students through the process of developing a digital web-based portfolio that showcases their strengths. Whether you’re homeschooling, part of a professional teaching team or an individual student, time spent with MacWatters will lead you toward developing the life-long research and tech skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
