         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!
         In our beautiful school I now have increased opportunities to collaborate with Mrs.Seldom-
    ridge in and for our shared Maker Space
         This is my 15th 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 Education, later earning my Learning
    Resources and Instructional Technology Endorsements 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 (and grandson :), traveling is my favorite pastime along
    with reading(of course!), working on our very old historic house and its garden and long 
    walks/hikes and kickboxing.
