I am a former high school social studies teacher. After taking a number of years off with my 3 children, I returned to education as a Library Media Specialist with much enthusiasm. I have spent the last three years as the Library Media Specialist at Parkview Middle School in Ashwaubenon, WI. While at Parkview I have worked hard to make the library an important hub of the school, from producing the daily announcements and running continual reading promotions to create a reading culture at Parkview, to taking on our school March of Dimes fundraiser. I truly believe that a strong library is essential to student success.

Here are a few examples of lessons that I have created:
