You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.  --Dr. Seuss

     It has been a pleasure to be the K-6 Librarian for the past 14 years helping your children find books that will help them to become life-long readers.  Roncalli has been my day-time family for the past 30 years.  I would not want to be anywhere else.  Before becoming the librarian I taught 1st and 2nd grades.  Reading became my favorite subject to teach and when I had the opportunity to spend my whole day involved in helping all students to love to read, I knew the library was where I had to be.  

     I have been married to Brad for 29 years and we have 4 grown children.  This fall we are learning what the term "empty nesters" means.  Jill is a CPA in Fargo, ND, Jennifer is the Member Services Coordinator at the Family Y in Aberdeen, Zachary is a junior at SDSU majoring in electrical engineering and Anthony is a freshman at SDSU majoring in Athletic Training.    

     The good Lord knew that I will need something to keep me busy this year, so His plans have led me to the opportunity to teach a section of 4th grade reading.  I am looking forward to getting to spend time back in the classroom and share my love of reading with them.
