Degrees and Certifications:
BA in Speech/Theater Education from St. Olaf College, MS in Library/Media Education from Minnesota State University
I've always been an avid reader, but my desire to become a Media Specialist did not become apparent to me until after I graduated from St. Olaf College with a BA in Speech/Theater Education. After several years of post-college work, I pursued my interest in library science, and returned to school for a library/media degree. This area felt like the perfect fit for me, so I continued my education and earned a MS in Library/Media Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
I've been teaching for 26 years, and libraries have definitely undergone changes! Technology now determines not only how I learn, but also how I instruct students. My goal is to create readers, but also to assist students in accessing information, evaluating it, and ethically using it to represent thoughts and ideas.
