I have been the Teacher Librarian at Skyview since 2004. Before becoming a librarian, I served in Adams 12 as a kindergarten, 2nd grade and 4th grade teacher. I also was the technology coach for teachers. Several years ago when the librarians were reassigned to two schools, I was allocated to Arapahoe Ridge Elementary as well. I am at Skyview on Mondays, Tuesdays and every other Wednesdays. In 2012, I became a Nationally Board Certified Teacher in the area of Library Media.
At Skyview, my primary role is to collaborate with teachers to ensure that all students receive 21st Century and Information Literacy skills necessary to be successful in our information dense world. I help students develop a love of literacy by purchasing and matching books to students and exposing them to quality literature. I sponsor the Battle of the Books club as well as other reading and robotics clubs. I also have implemented a Maker Space in the library called a "Genius Corner!"
