I am so excited to be Chandler's new Library Media Specialist! This is my first year in this position. Many people ask me why I wanted to become a librarian. The answer is simple. I love books and reading; I love technology; I love the makerspace / design thinking movement, and I love being able to work with both students and teachers - so this is the perfect job for me! I get to do all of those things as a Library Media Specialist.
I received my undergraduate degree from Baylor University. After teaching for 20 years in the classroom (and loving it!), I went back to get my masters in library science and technology.
I am married to Todd Harris, the Senior Minister at First United Methodist Church of Allen. We have two children - our daughter is a junior at the University of Arkansas, studying graphic arts, and our son is a sophomore at Allen High School. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking and being outdoors (except in the Texas heat!), reading (of course), and learning.
