Elementary: Moving Forward

About this Speaker

Leticia Kalweit is the library media specialist at Cobbles Elementary School in Penfield, NY serving grades K-5. She has previously held library positions in Hilton, Greece, and Gananda school districts. She holds a Master’s in Library Science and a Bachelor of Music. Leticia was drawn to libraries for their power to be a place in which all students can discover and build on their own unique interests as well as experience a sense of wonder and see the connections among all subject areas.

Leticia has served as a book reviewer for School Library Connection, presented at the BOCES 2 Tech Camp on the subject of a combined fixed/flexible library program and accompanying curriculum to support that, and is currently pursuing a Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Leadership. She also remains actively involved in local arts organizations and has presented at Finger Lakes Community College’s Honoring the Muse series and collaborated on a song set, “Silent Observer,” based on her poetry performed at The Tank in New York City.

Leticia credits her unique background and circuitous pathway to librarianship with giving her broad perspectives and building resilience. In her current role, she strives to create an environment in which all disciplines are equally valued, all students’ perspectives and experiences are honored and in which students are comfortable to express themselves and experience the interconnectedness among all disciplines and individuals.
