The University of Houston - Clear Lake's (UHCL) School Library and Information Science program will use its grant to recruit 15 teachers and educate them in a master’s program focused on emerging readers (pre-kindergarten and kindergarten). The project will increase the number of certified school librarians in Texas, particularly those who work with Hispanic populations; create a model program for educating school librarians in early childhood literacy through collaborations with the UHCL Early Childhood Program and field-based educational experiences; and establish professional development workshops and seminars for those already working in the field.
