Meet the Teacher Librarian
I believe the library is the heart of an elementary school and I hope our students find it to be a safe, inclusive space where they can bring their curiosity, wonder, imagination and discover books to expand their world! My love of reading took off when I was 8 years old when my dad bought me a copy of Ramona Quimby, age 8 by Beverly Cleary. I'm still an avid reader today and love all genres, most especially historical fiction and biographies.
This is my 13th year of teaching, and all but 2 of them have been in Everett Public Schools. I've had the joy of all 3 of my children attending Cedarwood Elementary and I have fond memories of being an Art Docent, room parent, and PTA volunteer before returning to the classroom again after a significant break to be home with my children. It is a dream come true to be the new Tambark Creek librarian!
I grew up in Los Angeles, CA and attended UCLA and received my Master's degree in Education and Social Policy along with my teaching certification from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. I have lived in Washington for 17 years and now consider the PNW home! My husband and I have been married for 26 years and we are proud parents of two wonderful college students, a 10th grader, and a 4 year old mini goldendoodle who are the absolute best part of our lives.
