Raised in the Hixson area, I am excited to start this year at Allen.  As my tenth year as a school librarian begins, I am thrilled to be in a great library in a great school!  I bring a variety of interests from hiking and canoeing to contra dancing and violin playing.  But most of all, l love reading.  Some of my favorite picture books are Chalk, Skippy Jon Jones, and My Name is Not Isabella.  Some of my favorite chapter books are Little House in the Big Woods, Lord of the Rings, and Out of My Mind.

I attended Big Ridge Elementary, Hixson Middle, and Hixson High before going off to college at the University of Georgia where I earned a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance.  I then tried several careers before receiving a scholarship to go to graduate school at the University of Tennessee to get my Master of Science in Information Sciences (i.e. to become a librarian).  Since then time as flown as I have been immersed in books, students, and learning.

One of my favorite quotes is "A room without books is like a life without meaning."--Thomas Jefferson.
