Mrs. Rhonda Coltrin

Welcome to the library at Andrus!  

I am beginning my 3rd school year in the library.  I am new to the world of education, and in my previous career life I was a pharmacist both with St Luke's hospital in downtown Boise, and with Walgreens.  I am a self professed bookworm and science nerd.  My favorite genre of books to devour are mysteries and thrillers.  I am unable to answer the question that I am so often asked, what is my favorite book?  I am completely unable to pick just one!

I am a mother to 2 boys, Lucas is in 6th grade and Zach is in 5th grade.  I have been married for just over 13 years now, my hubby is a computer engineer with SEL.  I am a runner.  I am a member of Team Run Boise (the happiest running group on the planet) and just completed my 6th half marathon this year, bringing my total to 13 half marathons.  I am currently training to run a 50k (yikes, that's 31 miles) in April, 2018.  I also love to scrapbook, travel and go camping.  I love all things Harry Potter and Star Wars.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job as your childs librarian.  My number one goal is to create and/or continue to build a love of reading in all of the students at Andrus.

I leave you with a favorite quote:

There is no such thing as a kid who hates reading.  There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books.  ~James Patterson
