Mrs. Janet Gates

Welcome to the EHS library!

My passion for teaching started in fourth grade when neighborhood kids would gather in my parents’ garage. Desks made of boxes were waiting for them with reading and English assignments ready for them to complete. Looking back, it is hard to believe I have been teaching for 28 years.

I love being the librarian at EHS and inspiring students to read great books. I consider myself an eduvangelist specializing in integrating technology tools in our school, helping students and teachers access reliable information, and building a deeper understanding about what is means to be digitally responsible.

I hope you visit our library often and find it to be a place where learning, creating, and collaboration happens...and shushing is rarely allowed."

I look forward to seeing you soon!
