Mrs. Jill Shepard

Hello!  I'm the librarian at Wilson K-8 and I'd love to tell you a little bit about our space.  The Wilson library is AMAZING!  Of course, our library is packed with books, but we also have legos, chess, puzzles, craft materials, Chromebooks and more. It really is a giant space full of learning opportunities, and I am here to help students get the most from all of it.  

My Personal Defining Moment in Education

Did you ever have one of those teachers who had so much confidence in you that it made you believe in yourself, too?  I did, and I hope everyone has had at least one teacher or coach or mentor who helps them have that experience. 

Core Educational Beliefs

I believe in the power of continuing to be a learner, throughout life.  Our children learn more from us when we continue to be learners ourselves.  I'll bet we can all think of a time when we observed our children doing something just because they saw us doing it (whether we wanted them to or not!).   I  hope my students learn as much from me as I do from them.  

Prior Experience

Prior to joining the Amphi family, I was an elementary teacher here in Tucson.  I absolutely love being a classroom teacher, but I always wanted to be a librarian.  This is the best of both worlds for me!
