TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a youth services librarian at the George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott, NY. I recommend books to patrons of all ages. Our library has a robust lineup of children's programming. I am currently responsible for toddler story times and tween programming including a book club for 4th to 6th graders. Other professional interests include incorporating technology into programming, grant writing, website design, and library collection development.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am fortunate to be able to interact with children in a relaxed environment to promote reading and books. I believe in encouraging children to find the fun in reading and hope to foster a love of books in my patrons.
