    I love being the teacher librarian here at Cedar Wood Elementary.    A library is supposed to be the hub of the school, and this is definitely the case at Cedar Wood.  I look forward to continuing to work with all of the students, parents, and staff, and would like to encourage all parents to volunteer in the library if possible.  We can always find something for you to do!  Don’t forget to fill out your Everett School District volunteer application form (click here for online registration), and email me if you are interested in volunteering.

    If you’re interested in learning more about me, I graduated from the University of Washington in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in history.  I returned shortly after and received a Master’s In Teaching in 1999.  I was hired by the Everett School District in 1999 and taught fifth grade at Garfield Elementary.   I taught there for seven years, and then applied to become a core team member at Forest View Elementary to help start up the new school.  That was an awesome experience!  I taught fourth grade at Forest View for the last seven years.  I am starting my fifteenth year of teaching as Cedar Wood’s new teacher librarian.  

    As an alumnus of the University of Washington, I will prioritize new released books to students aspiring to become Huskies, even if a parent has gone to Washington State University or the University of Oregon.  Cougars and Ducks will unfortunately not be allowed to check out any books whatsoever. :)

    Please email me or stop by the library if you have any questions throughout the year.  I look forward to working with you.

     
    Sincerely,
