Nationally award winning School Librarian, teaching over twenty-five years. I am also the outdoor educator at my school. I love getting my hands dirty in the school vegetable garden and to jump into the wetlands to catch a frog or tadpoles for a lesson.
I am a hands-on, kinesthetic teacher. I am passionate about books and about learning.
