I can’t wait to start the next school year as Forman Elementary’s new librarian! My twenty years of teaching experience (with the last ten years as McWhorter Elementary’s librarian in CFBISD) have equipped me to bring quality library programs, innovative technology opportunities, and engaging lessons to the children of Forman Elementary School. I am enthusiastic about learning! I frequently attend library, education, and technology conferences in the area. Last year, I presented a fun library lesson that connected tablets, QR codes, and science content vocabulary at the EdCamp Dallas un-conference, Texas Computer Education Association conference for Regions 10-11, and the Plano/Richardson Library Expo conference. At Forman next year, I will provide students with reading program opportunities to foster a love of reading and learning, in-depth lessons to support the district and state curriculum, and higher level thinking lessons which also integrate technology. I believe learning should be fun and we are going to have a great time enriching our knowledge and exploring new ideas in the library this year! See you soon!
