Library Media Specialist; Google for Education Certified Trainer, Jack Young Middle School-School District of Baraboo
I am in my 16th year as the Library Media Specialist for Jack Young Middle School in Baraboo, WI. I taught Social Studies and History for eight years before that. How has it been 24 years? Being a Library Media Specialist allows me to continue growing as a teacher, but I also get to share my passion for literature and curiosity about the world with students as well. I love movies, cats and all things Disney!
