I have worked with children for many years through Home Day Care and church activities. I have 4 adult children and 9 grandchildren. Over the years I have had the opportunity to do quite a bit of overseas travel including England, France, Italy, Israel and Egypt. In 1999 I was hire at Cotton Creek Elementary. First as a Lunchroom Para and later they trained me to be a Literacy Para. In 2002 I went to Stukey and worked in the Lunchroom, classroom, and workroom. The following year I was hired to work in the Library as a Media Clerk but still worked in the Lunchroom and Classroom. In 2012, Stukey took part in an experimental program where they no longer had a Teacher Librarian in the Library. Instead they hired a Digital Literacy TOSA. As a result I now manage a great deal of the Librarian duties on my own.
