    Judi Moreillon is a literacies and libraries consultant. She taught graduate students in librarianship for twenty-one years, most recently as an associate professor in the School of Library and Information Studies at Texas Woman’s University (Denton). She has served as a school librarian at every instructional level. She has also been a classroom teacher, literacy coach, district-level librarian mentor, and preservice classroom teacher educator. Judi was the principal investigator on the IMLS-funded Literacy Matters: Educating Librarians to Serve Families with Young Children grant project. She advised the eighteen Literacy Matters cohort students, taught three of the courses in which they participated, and provided workshop, conference, and other support for their learning as they developed into exemplary children’s librarians prepared to serve their communities through public library services. She is the author of two professional books for school librarians and classroom teachers: Coteaching Reading Comprehension Strategies in Elementary School Libraries: Maximizing Your Impact (ALA, 2013) and Coteaching Reading Comprehension Strategies in Secondary School Libraries: Maximizing Your Impact (ALA, 2012). She served as the chair of the AASL School Librarian’s Role in Reading Task Force. Judi has written numerous articles and several chapters focused on the school librarian’s instructional partner role. Along with Susan Ballard, she co-edited the Best of KQ: Instructional Partnerships: A Pathway to Leadership (AASL, 2013). Judi is also the author of three picture books for children and families. The latest picture book is Ready and Waiting for You (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2013).
