Get to know me…
1. My family includes my awesome husband, Oliver and lovely, pre-teen daughter, Gabrielle.
2. If I could eliminate one librarian stereotype it would be that librarians have an easy job. Our job is certainly not easy; however, it is fun on most days. We are teachers too. Our days are not filled with reading and shelving books.
3. My favorite book or author is…Dr. Seuss is my favorite author because I can vividly remember learning how to read with his books. His books opened the window for my love of reading.
4. I decided to become a school librarian because as a classroom teacher in Metro, I had two amazing librarians, Jeanette Lambert and Amanda Smithfield. They oozed passion and enthusiasm for the library, students, and learning. They were my best allies while teaching.
5. I think life is better with a four day work week ;)
