"I am proud to serve my school as a Teacher Librarian. I have been so fortunate to have amazing mentors that have helped me find my own groove in collaborative teaching and innovative technology integration. I love providing books that reflect all of the Learners in my community and sharing a love of reading everyday. I can't wait to learn from school librarians from all over and then bring that back to Oklahoma."
