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 engineering school 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.
