I am excited about beginning my second year as the Media Specialist for Independence Elementary School! It is a privilege to have this opportunity to help your child with their reading and research needs and interests! The IDES Media Center collection has a book for everyone. One of my favorite series, The Magic Tree House books, features the time travelling adventures of siblings Jack and Annie. Through these stories, I have travelled to nearly every corner of the world proving that reading really can take you places! Encourage your child to come by the Media Center to begin their next reading adventure. I have spent several years in school libraries and public libraries, most recently in the Lancaster County School District. Rock Hill has been my home for nearly 15 years.  I love chocolate, shopping, reading, travelling, and spending time with my family. I also look forward to meeting you and your child this school year. 

Favorite Reading Quote:

"The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village."    -Roald Dahl, Matilda
