Welcome to the Library


Lisa Polacsek -

Digital Teacher Librarian

I am excited to be at Vanderhoof! I have lived and worked in Arvada most of my life. I graduated from Arvada West and my boys attended Ralston Valley HS. One just graduated and is headed to mechanical/electrical engineering at CU. Both boys played hockey for Arvada Hockey and Ralston Valley. I also love to spend time skiing, hiking and being with my other two guys...my husband Alan and dog Finn.

I have taught for almost three decades. Fortunately, I have been able to have many experiences to enhance my teaching and continue to grow and learn. I taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grades before moving into the library. I have a master's degree in Technology in Education and another in Library Sciences/Technology. My passion is helping teachers, students and parents learn to collaborate and incorporate technology into learning. And of course I love reading and helping students find books to get them excited about reading too.
