This is my second year as librarian at Jefferson Elementary.  I've been a librarian most of my professional life at different types of libraries: elementary, high school, and at the University of Illinois.  I have an MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois, an MA in Historical and Political Sociology from the New School for Social Research, and a BS in Operations from THE Ohio State University (go buckeyes!)  

Research, technology, reading, critical thinking...it's all at the library.
