Having been a teacher librarian for over a decade at Tarver and almost as long at Hunters Glen Elementary, have been absolutely rewarding and uplifting. For the past ten years I have split my time with both schools and love the students and community of each one. I love to see the students excited to come to the library and see their true enjoyment of reading. I always welcome new book suggestions from students, staff and parents.
Digital literacy, technology, and digital citizenship are also a passion of mine, in which I am responsible for integrating into the curriculum. Keeping students and teachers informed of the new and innovative advances of the 21st century is a challenge, but one I welcome and enjoy. I am also the Building Tech Coordinator in both my buildings which requires knowledge of variety of technological updates and issues. I have also been a Student Council sponsor for over seven years and enjoy having students become school leaders and giving back to the community.
This my 21st year of teaching, I was formerly a high school and middle school English teacher in District 12. As an alumni of District 12, I attended school within the District for all my K-12 years. I have two wonderful, charming grown daughters and a loving supportive husband. We all enjoy traveling and spending as much time together as a family in the summer.
