I love learning! Call me the professional student! I've always enjoyed being in school. Loved the classroom environment, caring teachers, and the academic challenges. At an early age in life, I knew I wanted to work with children and attended a prospective teacher camp at Arizona State University at the age of sixteen. I attended and graduated from California State University of Long Beach with a BA in history, MA in education, and library media services credential. As a student teacher, I received the California Library Association Leadership Award in 1997. My career in education started as a middle school social studies teacher and school librarian in Westminster, California. I moved to Vermont in 1998 and worked at Malletts Bay Elementary School. I was hired as the librarian at Browns River in 2002.
I love being with my family, reading outside, writing in the early mornings, and taking photos. I've taken numerous online courses from a variety of institutions over a decade. I continue to take courses at St. Michael's College in education, courses at Vermont College in creative writing, courses at Community College of Vermont in art, and courses at University of Vermont in library science. I'm honored to have received the following awards:
