This is my story, this is my song.
I grew up on 80 acres outside the rural Missouri town of St. James. Upon graduating high school in 1999, I moved two hours west to attend college at Southwest Baptist University. After graduating from SBU in 2002 with a teaching degree in 9-12 Social Sciences, I obtained my first real job as part time Children's Librarian for the Polk County Library. Over the years, I went to full time status and worked my way up to be the Assistant Director.
In 2009, I parted ways with the Polk County Library to stay at home with my children full time. In 2014, I was called back to my passion of connecting kids with outstanding literature. Bolivar Middle School is a great place for learning. Come visit the library and allow me the pleasure of sending you out the door with a smile and a mission...to become a better reader.
