Hello! I have been in public schools for twenty-two years. I have also lived and traveled abroad which has given me many educational and life experiences. I feel blessed to be your librarian and want all students to have a lifelong love for books and reading. Mrs. Martha Garcia is a substitute teacher and parent volunteer. Miss Kimberly Gomez also helps in the library. They both help tremendously in our library. We welcome all of you to the library for the new school year 2015-2016.
