I am the Digital Teacher Librarian at both Columbine Hills and Dutch Creek Elementary Schools. This is my tenth year... and I absolutely love it! Not only do I get to work with staff and students, but I run the library, and am the go-to person for all things technology! Before becoming a DTL, I taught 5th grade, 4th grade math, and literacy to Kindergarten through third grade students. When I'm not in the library or in classrooms, I love traveling, hiking, cooking, watching AND playing ice hockey (go Avalanche!), and my husband and I are looking forward to adopting a new puppy to be a fur friend to our 1-year-old kitten, Winnie. And, of course, I love to read!

What I'm reading now: This year's CCBAs!
