As the librarian at Playa del Rey I am responsible for taking care of the library's book collection. It is also my responsibility to promote student reading by planning weekly lessons and activities that get Playa del Rey students excited about reading. In order to raise funds and purchase new books for this collection I plan a fall and spring book fair with Scholastic Books.
This is my first year as Playa del Rey's school librarian, but it is my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and fifth grade. I have a Master's degree from N.A.U. and a Bachelor's degree from A.S.U. in Elementary Education. I began working for Gilbert Public Schools twenty years ago, here at Playa teaching second grade. I am very happy to have returned to where I began teaching as I help promote new ways to get students' excited about reading at Playa del Rey.
