Hello Garden Ridge Elementary!

I have been an elementary school librarian since the Fall of 2015. I have a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Houston, and  received my MS in Library Information Systems from the University of North Texas. Before Garden Ridge ES, I worked at Flower Mound ES, Marcus 9th grade center, and  Vickery ES. I have spent 8 years working in our district. 

Previously, I was a 3rd grade teacher in Deer Park, Texas. Also, I spent 5 years working in technology for Allstate Insurance Company.

I am incredibly blessed to be able to combine my love of the library world and interest in technology. I get to immerse children in an environment rich with both. The smile and laughter of a child sharing a book or facts learned from reading is priceless. 

My favorite quote is from Mason Cooley:

“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.”
