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 2020 I am serving on the Association of Indiana School Library Educators' Rosie High School Book Award committee. I am studying Teaching English as a New Language at Butler University. 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. 😄

I am in my 16th year teaching at North Central.  Before becoming one of NC's teacher-librarians, I was a science teacher for 8 years, primarily at the 8th grade level.  I currently sponsor NC's Book Club for students and serve periodically 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.
