Degrees and Certifications:
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.”
