Hello, and welcome to the Marlin Library! This is my 7th year as a librarian and 14th year in the field of education. This is my 4th year at Monteleone Jr. High, and I love being part of the Marlin family. I am a proud product of St. Tammany Parish!
I have a B.A. in English Education and a M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with certification in Library Science. In addition to teaching ELA and being a librarian, I also served as an instructional interventionist in St. Tammany Parish at various schools. I have earned credit for many professional development opportunities during my 14 years of certification. I was accepted into and completed graduate level institutes of the Greater New Orleans Writing Project (GNOWP) and also traveled out-of-state to national conferences as a Teacher Consultant.
Fun facts: Mr. Monteleone was the superintendent when I graduated high school, and Mr. Folse was one of my high school assistant principals!
I look forward to another fantastic year of being your child's librarian as we soar to success! It is my goal to find your kids books that they love! I often write grants to freshen up our library with new books. Please feel free to check them out; any help is appreciated. https://www.donorschoose.org/LibraryLMJ
