My bachelor's degree is in Special Education from Illinois State University. I have taught for three years in various special education classrooms, including one year at Jefferson Park Elementary. I have also been teaching preschool for four years at Building Blocks Preschool at the United Methodist Church in El Paso.
My husband, Scott, and I live in Kappa with our three children, Julia, Jack, and Joey. My children and I have attended many of the story hours and summer reading programs coordinated by Mrs. Griffith. I am looking forward to leading story hour and the many children's activities the library has to offer. My hope is to encourage a love of reading in the children who utilize the library.
