About Me

I am a passionate reader and lover of libraries.  I have seemingly unending energy when it comes to discussing books and I love teaching elementary school library.  When I am not home, I can often be found at my local Maplewood library collaborating with the librarians.

In my free time, I love to read, spend time with my family and put my feet in the sand.

Other fun accomplishments!
