Elementary School Librarian
Tell us about yourself.
In elementary school my family moved from Pennsylvania to New Jersey and I attended Eastern Christian from that point forward. Currently, I live in Midland Park with my husband, Bryan, and our three young children. I enjoy outdoor activities, sports, spontaneous family adventures, and traveling. Our favorite destinations are Traverse City, Michigan and Ocean City, NJ where we spend time with extended family each summer. We are members of Grace Church in Ridgewood and are actively involved in ministry and community there.
How did God bring you to work at EC?
I graduated from Messiah College with a degree in Elementary Education. During my time at Messiah, I particularly enjoyed the children’s literature courses and knew by the time I was a senior that I wanted to share my love of reading and books with students as a librarian. After graduation, I went to grad school at the University of Pittsburgh and received my Masters in Library and Information Science. Prior to having children I spent seven years as a Library Media Specialist in public schools, first in Pennsylvania then in New Jersey. I am excited to return to EC as the elementary school librarian!
What sets EC apart?
I am grateful for the opportunity to invest in the lives of students at Eastern Christian. I love that EC aims to nurture the whole child–mind, body, and spirit–and encourages students to use their gifts to serve God and others. Having taught in public schools, I am thrilled for the opportunity to openly and regularly weave spiritual truth into instruction.
