Megan Chambers and Amy Taylor, library media specialists at Lee’s Summit West High School, are among 10 individuals featured as “spotlight educators” at the 2014 Midwest Education Technology Conference, being held during February in St. Charles.

The spotlight recognition honors leaders from the region in education technology, whose practices are making a difference for students as well as teachers.

Chambers and Taylor have worked together at LSWHS for the last nine years where their mission has been to create a teen-friendly atmosphere that fosters a love of reading while developing students who are literate in 21st century skills and use information responsibly.

Chambers earned her master’s in library science from the University of Central Missouri and is a former social studies teacher. Her career focus has been on combining the elements of research, technology and project-based learning.

Taylor earned her master’s degree in information technology from the University of Central Missouri and her master of library science from Emporia State University. She is a former social studies teacher and instructional technology specialist. She has focused on building meaningful collaborative relationships with students and staff that promote learning.

They are both active members of the Greater Kansas City Association of School Librarians and the Missouri Association of School Librarians. They have presented numerous times at national and state conferences.
