Welcome Book Lovers to the Lyon Library Website. I am very proud to be the Media Specialist for Lyon Elementary School. I have been the Librarian at Lyon since 1987. During the first few years I was part time at Lyon Elementary and part time at Madisonville Elementary. Later on, Covington Elementary grew, and several hundred students were sent to Lyon. Then, I was able to become the full time librarian for Lyon. I graduated from Mandeville High School in 1967. I graduated from LSU in Baton Rouge with a degree in Secondary Education and a degree in Library Science in 1971. My first teaching job was teaching Louisiana History at Pineview Elementary for one year. I then married and flew to Europe with my husband who was in the military. I was able to teach Government in Kaiserslautern, West Germany for a year in the GED program . After a few years traveling in Europe, I came home to a job teaching American History at Covington Jr. High which was all boys. Covington Jr. High later merged with Pineview Jr. High to form William Pitcher Jr. High. I stayed there until 1986. All total, I have been teaching 44 years in the St. Tammany Parish System. This is my 45th glorious year. I am very excited about this new year. I love Lyon Elementary and all the wonderful children who come to my library. Happy Reading!!!!!
