    I am so excited to be serving as your librarian at Reed!  

    This is my fifth year as a Library Media Specialist.
    I am a proud lifelong Allen Eagle!  I went to Allen Schools k-12 and just completed my 20th year teaching in Allen.  I previously taught in San Antonio.   
    I have two boys and a wonderful husband named Ted who is a wonderful cook!  Both of my boys are Allen graduates and have now graduated from Texas Tech University!  My oldest son Collin, is an industrial engeneer and and my youngest sone Matthew is a camp director for Pine Cove in Georgia.  In my spare time I like spend time with my family, read, knit, and make cards.   
    Please stop by any time and check out our great resources!
