I began my teaching career in 1998. During my 10 years of classroom teaching experience, I have worked with students from kindergarten to 5th grade. I am excited to begin this new fork in my career. I am currently working as a Library Media Specialist. Now, EVERYONE is my student. I love inspiring students to appreciate literature and the love of reading. Hopefully, this will be my legacy to them.
I believe in a simple recipe for student success. Show a personal interest in every student, motivate students to learn with engaging lessons, and remember that students will not rise to low expectations.

I received my Bachelor's degree in teaching from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. I received my Masters in Library Science degree from Texas Woman's University.
In addition to my love of reading, I enjoy crafting. You might even say that I'm a craftaholic! You can check out some of my creations at http://www.etsy.com/shop/purpledaffodils.
