Learning Literacy by David Warlick:


After a long career in marketing I made a life-changing decision to follow my dream of working with children. I recently completed all the course work for my Masters in Education with a concentration in Library Science, and will graduate top of my class with a 4.0+ GPA at Arcadia University, and was recently named “PSLA Outstanding Student Librarian” (click here for details).

The final step, student teaching, is underway. I feel very fortunate to have been placed in the tutelage of two amazing school librarians for my upcoming practicum: Judy High of Erdenheim Elementary, and the renowned and respected edu-tech thought leader Dr. Joyce Valenza of Springfield Township High School. Dr. Valenza requested me as her student teacher after I’d spent several months volunteering in her library. Since then I’ve worked with her on a number of projects for her school, the PSLA, as well as a LibGuides digital curation project requested by Governor Corbett, which you can view here.

I’ve created this website to make it easy for those evaluating my qualifications; I’ve included my resume, teacher/librarian work samples, and some personal information to give you a better picture of who I am and how I may fit into your organization.

Thank you for your consideration!
