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.

MY CAREER:
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.

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 HOBBIES:
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
