I am so excited about starting the 2023-24 school year as your librarian! I truly believe that the library is the heart of a school and look forward to helping students create, innovate, explore, and develop a love for reading and learning! This year we have lots of fun and exciting library programs like birthday book club, You've Been Booked, STEAM stations, Red Poppy Reading Challenge, River Reader Challenge, Bluebonnet Book Challenge, a Mock Caldecott, Read Across America and, of course, Book Fairs! I cannot wait to start this new school year with all of you!
In my 17 years in education, I have been an elementary librarian in addition to teaching kindergarten and fourth grade. I have my bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Texas A&M - Corpus Christi and hold a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of North Texas.
When I am not at school, I am at home hanging out with my family. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful daughters. In my downtime, I love reading, traveling, and listening to music.
