    I'm excited to be returning to Farragut for my sixth year as your FHS Librarian! This is my sixteenth year as an educator. I enjoy helping students find their next great read as well as helping them with research needs. Some of my favorite genre include historical fiction, fantasy and dystopian YA, and biographies from the Renaissance and Reformation era. I look forward to seeing you in the library, and please don't hesitate to ask us if you need help!

    Hello, Admirals! This is my first year as your FHS librarian. However, this is my fourth year as an educator. I have a heart for science, but I also enjoy helping students achieve their academic goals, finding a great new story, and exploring new interests! Some of my favorite genres include realistic fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. I look forward to seeing you in the library. Let me know how I can help you!
