Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  This is my 10th year as the Teacher Librarian for West Ada Schools. I started off my Education career 28 years ago as a middle school teacher before working in public and school libraries.  I am originally from Michigan and have lived and worked as a high school Librarian in Georgia and Florida. I am married and have two children; Allie (23) and Griffin (19).  We have three cats; Sylvester, Winnie, and Mouse and two dogs named Ky & Norah. I love reading and discussing all things about Young Adult Literature, traveling, swimming, skiing, and going to going to concerts.
