I have such a deep love of travel, people, stories and global events that I wanted to learn all I could about those subjects so I earned a BA in history with a minor in political science from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. 

I absolutely adore learning and education so my university studies brought me great pleasure but my best endeavors in education have been discovered through traveling and exploring the world. 

One of my literary heroes, C.S. Lewis, once said, "a children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest." I wholeheartedly agree and that is why I love being the librarian at SMA. 

 Is there anything better than watching a student fall in love with the adventures of Laura Ingalls, Ramona Quimby, Harry Potter or Curious George? I still love to read those books! 

I'm am an incurable BOOK HOARDER and hopeless lover of all things "book store-esque". I think reading stories is one life's greatest gifts. It's my hope that our students will spend many happy days, in our library, The Tiniest Mightiest Library, discovering more about the world and about the power of their own story.
