I am the new library media specialist at Lawrence School. I originally hail from Maine, but have made my home on Martha’s Vineyard. I come from a public library background, having received my Master’s in Library Science in 2010 from Indiana University.
I have worked with youth from birth-age 18, running storytimes, book clubs, reading to elementary classes, working with outside organizations such as storytellers and museums, and more. I received an additional teaching certification from the University of Rhode Island in 2015 to pursue a career in school library media, and am happy to have my first teaching job at Lawrence!
I can usually be found with a book in my hand and/or at the beach; if there’s no book in my hand it’s because I’m swimming!
