I have worked as a teacher-librarian at North Central High School since 2008. I have been an assistant speech team coach and Battle of the Books coach at North Central.  I am currently the Information Center Department Chair, IB MYP Personal Project student coordinator and Quiz Bowl coach. In my spare time I am a Girl Scout troop leader, a Boy Scout merit badge counselor and involved in 4H and American Rabbit Breeder's Association events. I am a tireless advocate for human rights and the freedom of speech, and I love young people! Talk to me about your latest discoveries or favorite book. 😄

Certificate of IB Teaching and Learning Butler University

I have taught at North Central for 15 years.  Before becoming one of NC's teacher-librarians, I was a science teacher for 8 years, primarily at the middle school level.  I currently sponsor NC's Book Club for students and serve on the Association of Indiana School Library Educators' Rosie High School Book Award committee.  When I'm not at school, I'm either reading, hanging out with my family, or paddling a dragon boat with my teammates, the Indy SurviveOars.  I believe that there is a book for everyone, and that everyone's story needs to be heard.
