It’s seems like I’ve always been a teacher! I started my career as a Water Safety and Swimming Instructor while I was still in high school, and I was a Ski Instructor in college. After earning my Bachelor’s degree, I moved to Colorado and became a Certified Elementary (K-6) Teacher. I began working in Adams 12 Five Star Schools in 1995 as a classroom teacher. I took a leave of absence to return to college and earn my Master’s degree in Educational Media. I returned to Adams 12 as a Teacher Librarian at Malley Drive Elementary in 2006. I had the privilege of opening the brand new library and computer lab at Malley in the Fall of 2007!
I am now the Teacher Librarian at both Malley Drive and Centennial Elementary Schools. Although it is challenging to work in two schools, I take every opportunity to share my love of reading, and to encourage and support digital literacy skills for all students.
