Literature and libraries are my passions. In my writing and service work, I advocate:

For full-time, professional school librarians and 21st-century library services and resources in every school;

For professionalism in the field of school librarianship that centers on classroom-library collaboration for instruction;

For the integration of authentic multicultural and international children's and young adult literature into the classroom-library curriculum;

For school and public library collaboration and for family literacy.

Young moms and babies from Pima County Public Library's Project L.I.F.T. (Literacy Involves Families Together) posed with me and their signed copies of my book, Read to Me/Vamos a leer, which is a poem I originally wrote for this project. I donate a portion of my proceeds from this book to Project L.I.F.T.

I serve on the Advisory Board for School Library Monthly, a magazine for school librarians. I author a column called "Quick Remedies" that focuses on hot topics in school librarianship.

I am on the Board of Advisors of Worlds of Words: International Collection of Children's and Adolescent Literature (WOW). The physical collection is housed at the University of Arizona. I serve on the editorial board for WOW Stories.

I am serving my second term as chair of the Knowledge Quest Editorial Board. I serve on the Common Core State Standards Task Force and the AASL Publications Committee for the American Association of School Librarians (AASL).

I am also serving a second term as chair of the Bridge to Understanding Award Committee for the United States Board on Books for Young People.
