Hemingway Elementary School has been my home away from home since I arrived in the valley in 1993 as a first year special education teacher. In 1995, I became one of the district's first reading specialists while simultaneously training as a Reading Recovery teacher in Twin Falls. This training revealed to me my passion for supporting literacy learning for all students. I had the opportunity to take this passion into a first grade classroom for five years before moving into my current position as Hemingway's teacher librarian. Moving into the library position brought me back to my experiences of working in libraries throughout my school years. Having recently completed the teacher librarian endorsement, I look forward to upgrading the library facilities and collection and welcoming all of our Pre-K-8 students to the world of reading and information literacy.
