Hi! My name is Mrs. Preye and I am your school librarian. I have a B.A. in History and Social Sciences from Eastern Connecticut State University and a Masters from Cambridge College in Education for Library Teacher. I taught history for seven years before becoming a school librarian. I love being in the library because I enjoy reading and research. I am happy to help our school community find books, complete research, find learning resources, and assist with technology.
Please find resources and lessons on the four service areas below:
