@BlazerMcGaryHi! I'm Julie McGary, and I am thrilled to be Bolin's Library Media Specialist. I have enjoyed other positions throughout 20 years in education including teaching middle school ELA and French and elementary gifted (AIM). The 2022-2023 school year marks my 14th year at Bolin and my first year as the AISD elementary lead librarian. Both my daughters attended Bolin and are now a Junior at Texas A&M and a Freshman at Purdue University. My husband and I will be alone for the first time with our Sheltie Minna. We keep busy with home improvement projects, travel, movies, and reading. Taking long hikes while listening to an audiobook is my happy place!I also love helping students find that just right book and partnering with teachers to develop our students' information literacy skills and digital citizenship. I'm also passionate about providing opportunities for students to improve their collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication skills. Fostering these skills empowers students to create their own future successes.Don't forget the power of a Growth Mindset and the word YET! The LMC will also be the place for the students' favorite Makerspace activities. I like to make them struggle - it's the only way to ensure their brains are growing! I am eager to partner with the Bolin community to keep our LMC abuzz with a thriving Makerspace program. Please see other sections of the Library Media Center webpage, the Bolin Blast newsletter, and classroom teacher newsletters for information regarding current Makerspace needs and opportunities for volunteering in the Library Media Center.
