Christina Taylor

Round Rock ISD
Librarian, RRHS
Austin, Texas Area
I am twice an alumna of UT: holding a BA in both English and French with a secondary education teaching certification in English as well as an MS in Information Science with a school librarian certification. Having been an educator since 1999, I left the classroom in 2013 to begin a new adventure as a freshly-minted librarian. In addition to the various professional skills and training that I've gained over the course of my career, I am a certified Google Education Trainer.

As a librarian, I revel in introducing users to the concept of the modern library — a place where new technology is lauded and embraced; graphic novels are celebrated; students can connect their own devices to the wi-fi or borrow ones for in-library use; and users can assemble puzzles, play board games, color, and tinker. In short, the modern library is the riotous Neverland that the gatekeepers of the musty libraries of old feared. And, I love that!
