Hi, my name is Mrs. Fife, and I am the Librarian at Pepper Ridge Elementary.
I was born and raised in Iowa and went to college at University of California, Davis. I raised all five of my kids in California before moving to Idaho. I am currently raising my grandson who is a 6th grader at Lewis and Clark. I have a teaching credential both here and in California, but being a librarian is my true passion. I love books and sharing them with the students. I love helping students to improve their reading levels, and seeing the light come on when they find a book they truly enjoy.
I have a very diverse background covering technology, design, genealogy, and theatre. Currently, I am working with a team of 5th graders on a 3-D printing project. I helped with the coding club for the last 2 years, and am hoping to one day offer a drama/theatre club.
I see all the students here at Pepper Ridge from kindergarteners to 5th graders. I teach lessons every week in different subjects ranging from the Dewey Decimal System to robots to recycling to chocolate and everything inbetween. But no matter what the lesson is, books are always at the center of it.
I hope your children are coming home with wonderful stories about the activites completed during their library time, because I am certainly enjoying the time with your children.
Thank you for sharing them with me!
