Educators have a lot on their plate. I know because I worked as a middle school teacher for 12 years and within the children’s department of a local library for two. Yes, I worked with adolescents whose minds, bodies, and attitudes transformed more times than The Magic School Bus. But, I loved every minute of it. That growth, the growth of those young minds, created room for new experiences every day.
In today’s classroom, educators not only must cultivate the budding minds of students, but they also have to traverse the changing landscape of teaching. Programs like STEM, STEAM, STREAM, along with the Next Generation Science Standards and Makerspace programs give students much to be excited about, as well as a lot to learn.
Ingram can help supply educators with the materials needed to guide students through the newest waves of academic and self-discovery. Our collection development team can pinpoint the hottest STEAM books for K-12, ipage® can make sure the treasured classics are in circulation, and our curation services can offer New Title Notification reports to keep you informed when the newest installment of a Veronica Roth series is set to hit the shelves.
Educators have tons to do and running out of time during planning period is a concept I am familiar with. If you are familiar with this scenario and need more time, let Ingram Library Services help you with title selections, order management, and collection development.
