I taught Kindergarten and First Grade for 13 years before becoming a Media Coordinator. I have been an elementary Media Coordinator for 15 years. I have also written Sunday School and Vacation Bible School Curriculum for Preschoolers for LifeWay for 30 years.
Child and book centered! My Media Center is a busy, fun place. I love to find the right book to hook a child on reading. I love to find ways to help teachers meet the needs of their classes. I love kids, books, and my job!

My building contractor husband is patient with my hours spent on the computer. My son is a software writer in NY and my daughter teaches ESL at my school and another local school. She posted her first lesson on TpT before me... so now the competition is on! Thanks to Krista Wallden http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Krista-Wallden for the fun graphics and background paper in my store banners.
