Diana is passionate about school libraries being places for students to discover, learn, grow, create, connect and collaborate. She has worked to transform her school’s library from a quiet, dusty, cluttered room into a vibrant and active learning space where students want to be. In 2014, she created a Makerspace in her library to serve as an informal STEM learning space for her students. She loves to share about her Makerspace journey and is enthusiastic to bring others along with her.
"Summer reading has been a topic of discussion by educators for decades. “Summer slide,” where students lose the gains they made during the previous school year, is a topic of conversation this time of year. This learning loss has a cumulative effect and impacts students as they continue to move through school. There does not seem to be one solution for this problem, but educators can agree that we have to keep trying (McLaughlin, Smink, 2010)."
