Mrs. Becky Kooyman
Hello, my name is Becky Kooyman and I'm happy to be the librarian at Gateway.
I fell in love with books at an early age and have had a book in hand ever since. I have an Associates of Arts degree in Library and Information Science and enjoy all aspects of managing and teaching in a library. My family and I have made Boise our home for over 15 years and all 5 of our children have been students in the West Ada School District.
This year I am helping students to "Unleash the Super Reader in You" as they learn how to research, locate and discover "just right" books for them. I'm impressed with their searching skills and love to hear them sharing books with each other. They are learning and growing and fostering a love of reading.
"There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all." - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
