I have been motivating readers as a teacher librarian in Washington and Oregon since 2004. Some of the districts I have taught in are West Linn-Wilsonville, Centennial, Beaverton, Hockinson, Camas, and I am currently teaching in Ridgefield, Washington. I received a MEd, BS, and Library Endorsement from Portland State University, as well as a Reading Endorsement from Concordia University.
Along with teaching, I am the parent of five children that any parent would be proud of. My favorite book is The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. A little known fact about me is that I was a reluctant reader and did not learn how to read until fourth grade.
