She is a frequent speaker, consultant, inservice provider, writer, and teaches online graduate courses for Rutgers University (NJ). In fact, she teaches the School Library Administration course there. Alice has written two books for school librarians, and her numerous articles have appeared in professional journals such as Library Media Connection, Library Talk, and Teacher-Librarian. Her FLIP it! framework for problem-solving has been utilized in both educational and business settings, and has been adopted as a basic resource by many school districts.
