Laura has a background in Education, and taught students across a range of ages and abilities, from kindergartners, to first-year college students, to College of Education graduate students. She is an innovative and energetic instructor, and enjoys trying out emerging teaching trends and tools.
Outreach is about more than just liaising with department chairs! At San Jacinto College Laura pioneered multiple outreach initiatives designed to familiarize students, faculty, and staff with utility and value of the library. Pictured above is the #meetourstaff initiative, which sought to use social media to combat library anxiety.
Laura has one year of experience managing library social media accounts. She has used applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Hootsuite, and Tagboard, and has planned and implemented numerous social media campaigns and contests. Pictured above is John Brower in a #bookfacefriday post.
Programs designed, planned, and implemented by Laura include International TableTop Day, Stress Less Week, and Banned Books Week. Laura enjoys planning programs that attract a wide range of students, including those who do not typically use the library. She sees programs as a way to showcase the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the library.
