Robin Rhodes, robinrhodes@ncslma.org

Robin Rhodes has loved the librarian life in elementary, middle, and high school libraries, as reference librarian at the public library, and as adjunct professor at App State in the MLS program. She has presented many times at NCSLMA and NCTIES conferences and led technology PD for teachers, administrators, and colleagues across the state. For three years, she served as the Mountains Regional Director for NCSLMA. She loves helping other librarians, laughing loudly and often, books, tech tools, dogs and her sweet children.
