COMMENTS OF INDIVIDUALS
 “I had my evaluation completed by my principal and I was needing a few
things:
 Conduct a student/parent/teacher survey
 Develop a 3-year media specialist plan that will be a living document and will be
updated each school year
 Find an evaluation for the library program (Hawkins, K. (2013). AAIM Listserv)”
 What is my three-year plan?
 What evidences or artifacts do I provide?
