So, who am I? I was born in Chicago but lived in the western suburbs most of my life: Glendale Heights, Bloomingdale, and Bartlett. I currently live on the north side of Chicago in Lincoln Square.
Having returned to the Midwest after working in the Boise Public Library for over three years, I was eager to get back to performing. As an educator/performer for Barrel of Monkeys, I've taught creative writing and acting to Chicago Public Grade School students for over 15 years, which contributes to my librarian skills.
I enjoy fantasy and science fiction in literature, movies, and TV.
One of the many fun challenges I look forward to as the new Middle School Librarian is creating engaging programs filled with critical thinking and fun!
