Hello Cheatham Chargers! My name is Shari Sawyers, and I am so thrilled to be your Library Media Specialist!
This is my 21st year in education, my 20th year with Allen ISD, and my 2nd year as a school librarian. I previously taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, but the Library is my absolute favorite place to be! I love working with all the students and teachers to promote a love of reading, as well as technology, research, and digital citizenship. Talking about books with students is the best part of my job!
Outside the library, I enjoy puzzles, crafts, sewing, playing games, building with LEGO, and spending time with my family. I have two daughters, two sons (my youngest, Daniel, is a 4th grader at Cheatham!), and one adorable grandson!
I look forward to talking with you all about our favorite books, exploring the world of information with digital tools, learning how to be digital citizens, and expanding our creativity with Makerspace activities! The library is a welcoming place where we celebrate diversity, discover wonder and knowledge, and enjoy meeting new characters every day!
