Featuring VSBA Committee Chair Amanda Tucker-Dye

by Brandi Hartsell

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 VSBA Middle School Committee Chair Amanda Tucker-Dye.

Amanda Tucker-Dye

Name: Amanda Tucker- Dye

Position within TASL: Volunteer State Book Award Middle School Committee Chair

How has being a member of TASL impacted your practice as a school librarian?

Professional learning and networking provided through TASL provides me with continued growth in my role as a school librarian.

What do you value most about the profession?

I love connecting students with meaningful experiences. This includes helping them find or create their reading identity, providing them with instruction and the space to help them become deeper thinkers, problem solvers, and advocates for their own learning.

What are you currently reading?

I have two books currently going! Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendhi and Trowbridge Road by Marcella Pixley
