"Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life."   

- Sidney Sheldon  


I have almost three decades advocating for literacy in schools. I was the librarian for the Casis Community in Austin ISD, and I have also taught Children’s Literature at Concordia University, and most recently worked at Southwestern University helping teachers navigate the certification process with TEA.

I am passionate about connecting readers to books and motivating them to be life-long learners, and what better place to do this than the library? I want the Bridge Point Library to be where children have the opportunity to fall in love with books and reading. Libraries should be portals to our student’s curiosities. I hope they see themselves in new ways by connecting to books we share together. I also hope our shared stories make them wonder, dream and open their world beyond their own experiences.

I feel lucky to be a part of the Bridge Point community and working with its teachers, parents, and especially its students!
