Hello, welcome to the Mountainside Elementary School LIBRARY page! I am excited to begin my 7th year here at Mountainside. My husband and I moved to Colorado Springs 6 years ago and we love all things Colorado. Our favorite things to do are hiking, camping and exploring the state in our little vintage camper! 

My passion is connecting kids with books they will love. In library, students are encouraged to read widely, explore new genres and topics and experience the pleasure of reading. Inquiry, collaboration, exploring  are all part of how we do technology lessons.

My dream is that our students will become passionate lifelong readers and learners.
