Hello and welcome to my MMS page!
Let me tell you a little about myself: I graduated from Boise State University (Go Broncos!) with a Communication and English degree in 1999. A couple of years later, I returned to BSU for my teaching certificate. While I had intended on teaching, life took a curve (as it tends to do). I decided to stay at home with my kids, and then when they were older, began writing content for blogs and ghost-writing ebooks. While I LOVED my time writing, the hallowed halls of education eventually called me back.
For the past three years, I have taught 8th grade ELA at the MMS. Through teaching, I have learned just how reluctant students are to read. Because I believe that students who don't love to read simply have not found the right book (or medium--I'm a fan of audiobooks, too!), I decided to make it my mission to connect the right book with the right reader. So, I packed up my classroom and headed to the library. While I will miss the classroom, I am so excited to embark on this new adventure and serve as the MMS librarian.
