Tomorrow begins my 29th year in education! After more than two decades at The Hubbard Woods Elementary School, I’m eager and excited to begin my new journey as a teacher-librarian at The Skokie School in Winnetka, IL. This unique school is a fifth and sixth grade building in which all of our feeder elementary schools gather for the first time in one place.

I’m moving into the role that was held by a beloved librarian who has excited and ignited the reading lives of students for many years. It is a lot to live up to, but I am ready!

The possibilities of flexible scheduling, deep and meaningful collaboration with classroom teachers and a redesign of the physical space have my mind racing with possibilities.

I look forward to learning and growing with the staff and students. I’ll use this blog to reflect and celebrate our growth together!
