I am the teacher librarian at Roybal Learning Center. This is my tenth year as a teacher librarian, before that I was a middle school English & history teacher. I teach library practice classes, research & digital skills to the overall student population and curate and maintain the library collection. I am the sponsor for the Roybal Readers Club, a student book club. The highlight of my year is going to YALLWEST, a teen book festival held every spring.
The focus of my teaching is promoting literacy & life-long learning and creating a place where curiosity & community are fostered by all our stakeholders.
Education: I have 14 years of higher education and this shocks even me, it wasn't planned, believe me, but it reflects my favorite interests: music, religion and books.
