TASL is an amazing organization. But it is the people who dedicate their time and energy that make it great. We at TASL Talks want to highlight our leaders and express our gratitude for their commitment to our wonderful profession. We will be featuring each member of leadership throughout the remainder of the year. I’m excited to share with you more about Area Rep Sherry Copeland.
Name: Sherry Copeland
School: Adamsville Elementary School
Position Within TASL: Hatchie River Region Area Representative
How has being a member of TASL impacted your practice as a school librarian?
TASL has introduced me to countless authors, illustrators and other librarians. Librarians are usually all alone within their school so it helps greatly to have other people to share ideas with or to “steal” ideas from. We all need new material to work with from year to year.
What do you value most about the profession?
The look on the face of a child who has finally discovered reading for pleasure.
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading any jr high books I can get my hands on because they have been added to my school and I had no idea what to buy for them!
Anything else you would like to share?
We all need to support each other especially during this world of constant changes!
