I am super excited to begin my 5th year as a librarian at Monrovia Middle School. I have a passion for books and reading and I love to work with kids! This will be my 15th year here at MMS. My first 10 years I taught 6th grade reading and even a little social studies. I graduated in 2000 from UAH and pursued my Masters Degree in Library Media in 2008 from the University of West Alabama.
