About Colleen


I am a school librarian, obsessed with Learning Commons transformations, Makerspaces, technology education, and making stuff.

I’m a tad obsessed with Makey Makey and Invention Literacy.

You can bring me to your school district or state conference as a Creative Education Consultant. I share creative resources and keynote at state and national conferences. For more info on my workshops and bookings click here.

Honors I have received:

  • School Library Journal (SLJ) School Librarian of the Year Co-finalist Award in 2014
  • Library Journal Mover and Shaker class of 2016 “Innovator”
  • Invited to speak to Congressional Maker Caucus on “Making and Education” Panel (2016)
  • Content Development Author for Demco, Scholastic blog, Edutopia, School Library Journal, School Library Monthly, and Knowledge Quest.
