|Biography for Judi Paradis|
I am honored to be serving as President-Elect of MSLA. I have served on the MSLA Executive Board since 2005 as the co-chair of the Advocacy/Legislative Committee and most recently as the Board Secretary. I work at the Plympton School in a K-5 library in Waltham, and prior to that worked as an elementary school librarian in Arlington. I have also worked as a program director at the Robbins Library in Arlington for 7 years, and worked for 18 years as a medical editor and writer (so that makes me old).
I am particularly interested in using the school library as a literacy center and as a cultural center in my school. I love project-based learning and am heavily invested in my wildly diverse school’s multicultural committee.
I have a B.A. in English Education from the University of New Hampshire, and a M.Ed. in Library Media Studies from Salem State University.
I live in Arlington with my husband Bob Carter. My daughter Abby teaches Kindergarten in Vietnam! And my son Rob is a student at Tufts University.
As a good librarian, I do own a cat.
