Meet the Teacher-Librarian

Ms. Jennifer Gómez

Welcome to my new-to-me library. This is my 17th year as a teacher, but my first year in the library. I love reading and I love working with middle school students. In a former life, I was a Spanish teacher here at Cario - and before that (picture proof) - a middle school student!

Please stop by my biblioteca anytime!
