What is you favorite memory related to school?
I always loved school as a child. My favorite memory was when I was in the Fifth Grade. It was 1976 and it was our country's Bicentennial birthday. We did several special projects to celebrate the Bicentennial. One of our class's projects was entered in a competition and received the top award. I still have two little handmade, paper, patriotic Christmas tree ornaments that I hang on my tree each year that remind me of that fun time. My teacher made such an impression on me because of her willingness to make learning so meaningful and fun!
What motivates you to do what you do as a librarian each and every day?
My love for children and reading is what motivated me to become a librarian. I want to be someone that makes a difference in the life of the students that I share each year with. I love to watch that spark in each child's eyes as they learn to read. Sharing the joy of reading with children is my passion! I am blessed each day by the children I teach!
What are your favorite books?
My favorite children's book is The Little House by Virginia Burton, which was written in 1942 and received a Caldecott for it's illustrations. My favorite children's chapter book is The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. My favorite adult book is O Rugged Land of Gold, written by Martha Martin.
