Hello!  I'm the teacher librarian at Northwest High School  and have been here since 2003.  Before becoming a librarian, I taught high school English and speech communications for ten years.  The library at Northwest High School is dedicated to making students academically successful.  NHS Library also embraces the 21st century vision of school libraries and offer different learning commons to accommodate all students.  As a teacher librarian, I collaborate with all learning disciplines to help teach students how to find information through a variety of formats as well as making them aware of the power of reading, either for academic purposes or for pleasure.
