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!
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.
