Advocacy Resources Developed by BC Teacher-Librarians

We are all working in trying times, often spending long days just trying to maintain our existance, nevermind be worldclass teachers. Many of our colleagues are under strain and threat of cuts. We can lose heart. Despite the too frequent stresses confronted by professional teacher-librarians, a few colleagues raise the bar of professionalism and resist the odds.
