As a teacher librarian, I aim to foster in students an enthusiasm for lifelong learning as they pursue and fulfill personal and academic challenges.  The privilege of being an educator is unmatched and it it is an honor to be able to work with and learn with so many individuals at such an important stage of their lives.  My expectation is that the students I work with today will forever have and utilize skills and abilities as a result of my work as an educator.  My goal is to help them develop and pursue their passions to make this world a better place.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with and watching my young kids learn about the world.  Sometimes, this allows me simultaneously to enjoy my other passions of photography, travel, and going to other libraries.


“Education is Freedom”
-Paolo Freire


"When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years."

-Mark Twain
