- About My Library
- When I first arrived in 2004 we did an extreme library makeover and made the library a great place to visit. We encourage food and drinks, have a library cafe, 4 huge Luv Sacs, offer free monthly pancakes, and do a ton of other fun things. We also have a "No Shushing" policy.

- About Me
I hope that I can learn about issues that parents face with getting their sons to read. Plus, I hope to share what I know as well.
I taught sixth grade for the first 4 years of my career, followed by another 6 years as an elementary librarian. I switched to the high school level and am currently in my 4th year as the teacher-librarian at McLain Community HS. It's an alternative high school which means that 95% of our 700+ students are labeled at risk, all of which have dropped out of their previous school. When I first arrived in 2004 we did an extreme library makeover and made the library a great place to visit. We encourage food and drinks, have a library cafe, 4 huge Luv Sacs, offer free monthly pancakes, and do a ton of other fun things. We also have a "No Shushing" policy.
My favorite hobby is spending time my family. I have 13 and 9 year old kids and just celebrated 15 years of marriage. I also like technology, 4-wheeling, Sat. Morning Basketball, Hiking, and
I have been cutting my own hair for 18 years, My high school buddies call me E.T. because I have hammer toes, I Lived in Nome, Alaska for 8 months, I hated to Read as a kid and now I'm a librarian.
