Greetings! I am the teacher-librarian for IST’s secondary school. A strong advocate for literacy, education, and the arts, I hail from New Mexico, U.S.A.  Although I have worked in public and private schools in America, I have spent most of my career at international schools in Honduras, Bolivia, Myanmar, China and Saudi Arabia. A certified librarian with a Masters in School Library and Information Technologies, I also have a Masters in Educational Technology from Michigan State University.

The most rewarding parts of my job are collaborating with teachers and students to help support what they do in the classroom and connecting readers with great books. Outside of work, I enjoy video editing and surfing the web for information and inspiration. Offline, I love to write, read, create art, swim, travel, and photograph the everyday world.
