Explore the site to find out what it’s like to be an 8th grade Language Arts teacher-turned libraryman.

I taught Language Arts for five years before becoming a libraryman. I’ve also taught Honors Freshman English, Sophomore World Lit, and Junior U.S. Lit.

[sound of own horn tooting] I have an M. Ed. in Educational Technology and Curriculum. In 2007 and 2008 I was a speaker at AZLA. I was the 2005-06 district junior high teacher of the year. My toddler daughter tried to eat the apple statue.

Right now I’m also enjoying being on the committee to select the nominees for the Grand Canyon Reader Award.
