Todd Burleson

Hubbard Woods Library Media Specialist and 2016 School Library Journal's School Librarian of the Year!

Todd Burleson is a Teacher-Maker-Librarian at the Hubbard Woods School in Winnetka, IL. The community helped develop, as part of their school library a makerspace they call The IDEA Lab. They like to think that these initials roughly represent some of their core tenets: Innovation/Design/Engineering and Art.

They believe that STEAM education is the blending of all disciplines in a seamless and celebratory way. Todd’s passion is the awakening of curiosity in learners of all ages. His team works hard to maintain a balance of books and bytes.
