A passion for life-long learning and working with children led me into the education field. I began my Adams 12 career as a first and second grade teacher, then later became a Student Achievement Coach, and now serve as a Teacher Librarian. I currently split my time between two elementary schools, Meridian and Prairie Hills. I have been a Teacher Librarian for the last six years and joined the Meridian staff two years ago.
Working as a Teacher Librarian is a perfect fit because I enjoy assisting students in their academic endeavors, supporting literacy, and teaching 21st century skills. The library is a hub of learning in the heart of the school where staff, students and community members can immerse themselves in a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction resources.
When I am not occupied with teaching and managing library activities at my two schools, I enjoy reading, sewing, watercolor painting, traveling, watching movies and spending time with my family.
