Welcome to the library! 

Here's a little about me, your librarian.

I am a graduate of Red Oak High School and have lived in Red Oak since 1978. Shields opened that year and I attended 5th grade there. It's been an absolute pleasure to be able to teach in the same building and district that I grew up in. 

I began teaching in 1992 and taught 3rd grade for 15 years. I joined Red Oak ISD in 1998. In 2007, I became the librarian at Shields. I completed my Master of Library Science degree from North Texas University in 2008. 

I have a son in the 6th grade and my husband is a Director of Special Populations. In my spare time, I enjoy watching baseball, gardening, reading and spending time with my family. 

The library is my favorite place and I hope you will love it too!!
