I’m Christine Sturgeon, the K-12 teacher librarian/technology integrationist at Manson Northwest Webster Schools in Manson, Iowa. I’m a graduate from the University of Missouri-Columbia, with a Master of Arts in Information Science and Learning Technologies, Emphasis in Library Science. I am excited to be accepted into Drake’s doctoral program in Educational Leadership, beginning classes in fall 2015.
I speak at state library conferences (the latest is “Build your own Makerspace: The next great library adventure,” which I’m doing with three great ladies) and I serve as Government Action Committee chair for the Iowa Library Association. I am a member of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council for the North Central region, am a founding board member of the student voice organization, Iowa Student Learning Institute, and was a volunteer giver in the first and third annual World Book Nights (RIP, WBN). I am a mother of five and lives with my husband and our school-aged children in rural Gowrie. Fun fact: my husband and I met online. In 1989.
I am passionate about helping students challenge themselves.
