    About The Teacher
    grey line
    I am very excited to be the librarian at Kyrene Traditional Academy - Sureno Campus.  This will be year seventeen for me at this campus.  I look forward each year to seeing former students and meeting our new students.
    I have lived in Arizona for thirty-five years.  I have also lived in Boston, Erie, Germany, and Long Island.  I have two adult sons who attended school in the Kyrene School District.  My grandson, Miles, will be starting second grade in Nevada.
    I have experience teaching fifth grade, kindergarten, and pre-school; as well as six years as a children's librarian at Phoenix Public Library, Ironwood Branch.  I hold endorsements on my teaching certificate in library science, SEI, reading, and gifted education.
    Of course, I love to read; but I also enjoy golf, skiing, scuba diving, and hiking.
    Your child's library experience will be filled with child-centered inquires, research, literature studies, author studies, and computer based lessons including Internet safety.  We will explore the history of children's literature and literature around the world.   
    I look forward to a wonderful school year!
