Welcome to the Library

Short Bio:  As a 1986 La Vega graduate, I am very excited to be here. I have worked in public education for thirteen years and am bringing 16 years library experience with me to the campus. 
 
Daily Schedule:  The library will be open from 7:45 - 11:45 and 1:15 - 4:00 each day.
 
Educational Philosophy:  I truly believe reading is the most essential component of education.  By building stronger readers, we are ensuring academic success across all areas of the curriculum.
 
Spring Semester Concepts:  The students will continue building on prior library knowledge/skills. Whether it be a project for core classes or recreation, students will continue to self-select books that peak their interest.  The students will continue to follow general library practices and procedures for the 2016-2017 school year.
 
Math Rocks:  Meets every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00-5:00.
