Mrs. Doles, Librarian

I’m Andrea Doles, your Ben Steele librarian. This is my 4th year at Ben Steele. Before working at BSMS, I was a librarian at Will James for 19 years. I’m an alum of Montana State University Bozeman (Go Bobcats!) where I received my BA in English with a K-12 Library Media certification. In 2013, I finished the Technology Integration Master’s from Lesley University. When not working in the library, I enjoy doing family research, embroidery, reading, and spending time with my family and cats.
