I have been in education for 21 years. I spent 17 years as a high school science teacher. Then in order to continue to learn and grow, I chose to get my school library degree, because I love books, libraries, and technology. I have been at McElwain for a total of 4 years. My first 3 ½ years in school library were at McElwain, but then there was a reorganization and elementary librarians were cut to ½ time. I went back to science teaching for 2 years, and then there was an opportunity to return to McElwain as the teacher librarian!
This year I work ½ time at Hillcrest Elementary, and ½ at McElwain. I enjoy working with the students and staff at both schools. It is fun promoting the joy of reading, and collaborating with teachers to support the curriculum with information literacy.
