This is my seventh year at Disney Magnet School and I am enjoying working with my students from last year and students who are new to me. Before living in Chicago, I lived in Washington D.C. where I worked as a school librarian for six years. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master of Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a big Tarheels fan! I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Library Media. In my free time I am a big reader and I love to cook and eat. I love spending time with my two little boys.

I believe that the ability to find and use information effectively and ethically is vital to the 21st century learner. I also think it is incredibly important to find books to read for fun! Encouraging a love of reading is one of our primary goals in the library.
Some of my favorite books:
Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins (This is by the author of The Hunger Games.)
anything by author Mo Willems
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
The series: A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
anything by author Polly Horvath

All of these books can be checked out here in our own library!
