I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, but have lived in Texas for over 30 years. I’ve been married for almost 35 years, we have two grown children and two grandchildren. After homeschooling my daughter, I started working at our neighborhood elementary school as a 4th Grade Aide, then a para-librarian. I’ve worked as a para-librarian at Sue Crouch Intermediate School in Crowley ISD, since 2012. It’s a two-year campus for 5th and 6th grade, so every other year I teach Our Nation’s Foundations to supplement Social Studies curriculum. I’m also known in local circles as the Tap-Dancing Librarian for hosting an after school Tap Club.
