Mrs. Michele Echevarria

I'm excited to spend another year as the Ethridge Librarian. Ethridge has been my home for more than 20 years, and I've had the privilege of being the librarian since 2015. I spent all my years teaching in a Kindergarten classroom. I have an extensive personal collection of children's literature (that sounds better than a book hoarder). Since becoming a librarian I've enjoyed getting to know and read books that appeal to older students. I love it when my 3rd - 5th graders give me book recommendations!

I'm originally from Iowa, but have called Texas home since 1987. I earned by BS from Iowa State University, my teaching degree from TWU, and my Master of Library Science from UNT. I'm an avid reader and podcast listener. I also enjoy walking, biking, traveling, and cooking.
