Welcome to the PGS Library Website!
Mrs. Glass, NBCT Teacher- Librarian
The library is the hub for the PGS learning community! Every day I look forward to
connecting students to books they will love and helping everyone learn to access the infor-
mation they need. Because I support teachers in every subject area, I am always learning
new things, too.
This year we are settled into our beautiful new nest! I am looking forward to the
increased opportunities to collaborate with Mrs.Seldomridge and classroom teachers for
research and technology.
This is my 12th year at PGS as the teacher- librarian. I taught 5th and 6th grades at MTS,
and substitute taught grades K-12 in Tumwater schools before that. I intended to teach
reading at the Kindergarten level, and received my Education Degree from the University
of Michigan with a major in Early Childhood. Later I earned my Learning Resources Endorse-
ment and in 2011 achieved National Board Certification for Library Media.
Tumwater teachers inspired both my daughters towards their career pathways- my oldest
daughter was encouraged by her science teachers at TMS and my younger daughter's art
teachers at TMS and BHHS were a huge influence and support system, too. I feel fortunate to
teach in Tumwater and in particular to be part of the PGS staff.
Besides time with my family, traveling is my favorite pastime (this summer I hope to look
for troll stories and Viking history in Norway, see The Little Mermaid statue in Denmark, the mid-
night sun in far northern Finland and, hopefully, a reindeer!) along with reading(of course!),
working on our very old house and garden and long walks/hikes and kickboxing.
