Using technology in the classroom for learning is no longer new and innovative; it is expected and even demanded. K-12 teachers have a responsibility to employ technology tools in multiple ways to teach and foster students' development of 21st-century skills and enhance researching, learning, and creating. School librarians can be instrumental in the process. However, just as students' and teachers' needs are changing, so are the needs of school librarians. Collaborative partnerships with opportunities to hone skills and strengths and to discover new resources are more important than ever before. This article describes one librarian's experience of providing professional development at the school level, and the role partnerships with other professional librarians had in supporting her new endeavor as the school's technology leader.
