My current role is as the Media Specialist/Technology
Liaison for both WHS and WJHS. I have spent the last 20+ years as a HS English teacher, schoolibrarian/media specialist, and technology integrationist. Throughout these years, my passion for books has grown, while at the same time my inner-technology junkie has evolved. Sharing these interests with the students and staff members of WPS is my primary focus, and I also publish teaching tips, tools, and reflections on my Hey, Mrs. Library Lady! blog
