I'm an elementary school librarian and author of The Centered School Library. I blog about reading, makerspaces, and library learning at librarylearners.com. Everything that I sell in my TPT store has been tested and refined in my elementary school library with preK through fifth grade students.
I use learning centers (work stations) and makerspaces in my school library. I love the hum of purposeful activity as my students are moving, talking and learning! My library is RARELY quiet! My students are engaged and joyful!

I'm the proud mother of three sons, and I love to travel as often as possible and to spend long summer days reading on the beach! My pound puppy Pinto keeps me walking, no matter what the weather! My students keep me smiling all day long.
