I have a BS in Elementary Education, and after teaching fourth and fifth grades for eight years, I earned my Masters in Library and Information Science.  Being a librarian had always been one of my life goals. This is my thirteenth year to serve as a librarian in VAISD, but my husband and I have lived here for twenty-two years.  We have two grown sons and five grandsons.  It is my delight to work with our students and staff.  This community and its young people have worn a path in my heart.  It is my intention that our library be the "living room" of the school, a place of welcome and friendship for everyone.
