Welcome! My name is Ciara Harrop, and I am the Library Media Specialist at Green Elementary School. I grew up right here in Allen, Texas; attending Vaughan Elementary, Ford Middle School, Lowery Freshman Center, and Allen High School. I was a part of the "Ready, Set, Teach!" program at AHS, which allowed me to intern at Green Elementary for one year. I am so excited to be back in Allen ISD and to be able to bring my passion for libraries to Green!
I have a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Stephen F. Austin State University. I hold a Early Childhood through 6th Grade Generalist Certification, as well as Grades 4-8 ELAR, EC-8 ESL Supplemental, and School Librarian certifications. I received my Masters Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of North Texas.
I love to read because I enjoy learning about different people and places. I read a lot of fantasy and adventure books and love to read about characters that overcome challenges and stand up for what they believe in. Some of my favorite books include the Harry Potter series, Anne of Green Gables, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, and I Want My Hat Back. I also love to explore new places through travel. London and Edinburgh are two of my favorite places to visit!
