Prior Experience

I worked for the Amphitheater School District from 1994 until 2014 as a Music Teacher and Choir Director. I have also lived and worked in New Mexico where I was an assistant principal. After moving back to Tucson, I started subbing in the district and took a long-term sub job here at Cross as the Librarian during the 2020-2021 school year. I found that I love working in the library. I decided to study and obtain my Library Certification and applied for the job here at Cross. This is my third year to be a part of the Cross family.

What I am committed to providing CMS students, parents and staff

I am committed to creating a positive, inviting environment that encourages students to ask questions, learn and grow through reading.

3 things I am working on this school year

  1. Creating a user-friendly environment that doesn't look like it did when our current student's parents attended Cross!
  2. Increasing the number of new books available for checking out
  3. Updating the look of the library to appeal to our current students using student-created artwork and photos of students in activities on campus

Things I enjoy outside of school

Reading, journaling, crocheting, camping, hunting, working on my house and in my yard, attending church, traveling, seeing my grandchildren, and helping others.
