    Educational background

     

       I graduated in 1990 with my bachelor's degree from Texas Womans University.  I taught third grade two years at Era ISD.  Then I was hired by Mary Moore to teach fifth grade at J.M. Lindsay.  The following year I started teaching fourth grade.  While Gainesville ISD was building W.E. Chalmers Elementary, the 3rd and 4th grades were divided between J.M. Lindsay and McMurray.  I was moved to McMurray as a fourth grade teacher.  Finally in 2000, Chalmers was finished and we moved out here where I taught 4th grade one year.  The following year I began teaching third grade.

       I earned my master's degree in Library Science from the University of North Texas in 2006 and Mrs. Mercer hired me to be the librarian here starting in 2006/2007.  I love being in the library and working with all the students.  I try to instill a love of reading and books with all the students.  The trick is to find the perfect book for each child.   I also teach library skills and researh skills to all the students.
