Howdy! I'm Mrs. Reinken, and I'm thrilled to be the library media specialist for the great students and staff members at OSE!
This will be my fourth year as your librarian and I couldn't have asked for a better place to be! Prior to becoming a librarian, I taught 1st, 2nd, mixed 1st & 2nd, 4th, and Reading Recovery. I have enjoyed teaching a variety of grade levels and subjects, and getting to share my love of learning with all of my students.
I'm proud to say that I'm a Lewisville High School Fighting Farmer alumna, as well as being a graduate of Texas A & M University- whoop! I received my master's degree in Library Science from Texas Woman's University.
I live in Frisco, TX, with my husband Derrick and 2 of our 3 wonderful children. Our oldest daughter, Jordan, recently completed graduate school at UTMB Galveston, where she earned her master's degree in dietetics. Jordan is now a registered dietician, working and living in Houston. Ava, our middle daughter, will be a junior at Flower Mound High School. Ava is a member of the Varsity cheerleading squad, and she's involved in the National Honor Society and the Student Council. Our son Kyle will be in 8th grade at the middle school near our house in Frisco, Griffin Middle School. Kyle is involved with the Griffin football team and school athletics. My husband and I stay busy with all of their activities- football, cheer, tumbling, etc. We enjoy spending time together and can't believe how fast our children have been growing up!
I'm looking forward to a fantastic school year; I know we'll have a great time learning and working together. I'm looking forward to getting to know our students and inspiring them to be "Shining Stars" at OSE! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you!
