||I have worked for Tulsa Public Schools for 24 years. This is my 17th year serving students as a Library Media Specialist. Before becoming a librarian, I taught pre-school and 1st grade.
I earned my Masters of Library and Information Studies from the University of Oklahoma in 2004 Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Northeastern State University in 1992. In 2006, I achieved National Board Certification in Library Media/Early Childhood through Young Adulthood.
September 2009, I was awarded the Polly Clarke Award by the Oklahoma Association of School Library Media Specialists. This award is awarded to an Oklahoma school library media specialist who has been instrumental in the establishment of an exemplary library media program which serves the instructional needs of teachers, students, and administrators.
In my spare time, I love to cook. I am a certified chef. Of course, I like to read and I enjoy spending time with friends and family.|
