Books rock my world, and so does Rucker! I am so excited to be a part of Rucker Elementary as the Library Media Specialist! This will be my 17th year in education. I graduated from Simpson College (Iowa) with a BA in Elementary Education. My career began in Iowa teaching special education. I moved to the classroom and taught 1st grade for 4 years. During these years, I received my Masters in Education from Viterbo University (Wisconsin). After moving to Texas 11 years ago, I taught 2nd grade in Frisco ISD.
I love helping all stakeholders find the book or resource that will take them on a far-away journey or on a learning adventure. My dream has always been to be a librarian. Three years ago, I went back to school at the University of North Texas to receive my School Librarian Certification.
One of my favorite things to do at home is to ready with my 4 year old son, Nathan, and my 1 year old daughter, Ellie. We also love doing all things outdoors - taking our dog, Jayhawk, on walks, playing at the park, swimming, and playing all sports! We love to laugh and enjoy every moment we have together!
Rucker Elementary is an amazing place to be! Each of you contribute to the pages in the story of our school!
