Cherry Fuller - Denton Inquiry 4 Lifelong Learning Grant Project Manager

About me:
I've been in education for over 46 years, first as a teacher for about 16 years, then as a librarian. I started teaching in a two room school on the village green in Vermont. Following 3 years of teaching in Vermont, I returned to Texas and taught in San Angelo TX for about 10 years. Then I moved to Denton TX to pursue additional education opportunities. I was a teacher, then a librarian in Northwest ISD, Justin TX.. After 17 years at Northwest ISD, I worked at the Education Service Center Region 11 in Ft. Worth TX for 17.5 years. I've developed and implemented several statewide library projects over the last few years.

I'm excited to be able to work on this project! It allows me to reach back to my roots as a teacher creating student-centered instruction grounded in the constructivist theory that hands-on learning is best. It also allows me to apply my library expertise and collaboration experiences with teachers to help develop the Information Literacy Curriculum Units.

The purpose of the Denton Inquiry 4 Lifelong Learning Grant is to fund a community-wide collaborative effort in Denton Texas to build an age-appropriate, spiral information literacy curriculum that will prepare incoming college freshmen for college-level research as well as support them through doctoral-level research.
