Mrs. Janet Gates

Welcome to the EHS library!

My passion for teaching started in fourth grade when I would invite neighborhood kids to my parents’ garage. Desks made of boxes with reading and English assignments were waiting 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!
