A very scary but true statement. But there are people out there who are trying to do something about it. Two entrepreneurial Australians have invented the Seabin Project to help clean up our beaches and harbours. So simple - but then some of the best ideas are like that. . .
I am the Primary Teacher Librarian at the International School of Lausanne in Switzerland. I followed my love of books and became a Teacher Librarian over 12 years ago. I am passionate about reading, literacy and technology and see all three as essential skills for students to navigate both the present and the future. My favourite kinds of books are picture books - I just can't read enough of them! I am also a trained music teacher who plays flute and piano and believes music is the fourth essential skill in helping prepare today's young people for the future.
