NAME: Jodi Moscato
SCHOOL/ORGANIZATION: MacArthur Elementary School, Binghamton City School District
TITLE: Library Media Specialist/Certified Teacher Librarian
DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE: My role as an Elementary Librarian is so many jobs combined into one. I think the two most important jobs are introducing children to all types of books and to teach them how to be outstanding digital citizens. I have the opportunity to introduce all genres, styles, topics, formats, and reading levels to our students PreK – 5th grade. When a student doesn’t know what book to get I always ask them, “What is your absolute favorite thing in the entire world?” I then find a book about that topic; it’s even better if I can find a fiction and a nonfiction book for them to choose from. I also take great pride in teaching our students how to be outstanding digital citizens.
