         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!
         Now we are settled into our beautiful new nest and I have increased opportunities to
    collaborate with Mrs.Seldomridge and classroom teachers for research and technology.
         This is my 13th year at PGS as the teacher- librarian. I taught 5th and 6th grades at MTS 
    and substitute taught in grades K-12 in Tumwater schools before that. I graduated from the
    University of Michigan with a major in Early Childhood, later earned my Learning Resources
    Endorsement 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 along with reading(of course!),
    working on our very old house and garden and long walks/hikes and kickboxing.
