About Me

I am the Library Teacher for  the Norton Elementary Schools: HAY, JCS, and LGN. A NEW Book Reviewer for The LibraryThing.  I received a Bachelor of Science from Stonehill College, an M.Ed. in Library All Levels from Cambridge College, and I recently completed my CAGS certificate in Reading at American International College.

Favorite Things

 My favorite picture books are Make Way for Ducklings and Where The Wild Things Are.   My favorite chapter book is by Kate DiCamillo- Because of Winn Dixie.   I enjoy working with kids,  the Boston Red Sox, riding my bike, dogs, the beach, and traveling the USA and around the world- my favorite state to visit is Hawaii and anywhere tropical.

                Welcome Back!

We are  excited for a wonderful year in Library Media.
